Delete the term, “shear fracture,” which is attributed to subcommittee E28.07, from E6.
The phrase “shear fracture” is not defined in any E28 standard. No E28.07 standard refers the user to E6 for the definition of “shear fracture.”
It is most frequently found in E28.07 standards in the formally defined phrase “shear fracture appearance” but almost never found without the trailing “appearance:" 2x in E23-18, 2x in E436-03(2021), and 5x in E604-18.
