Revision of E1823-21 Standard Terminology Relating to Fatigue and Fracture Testing


This ballot fixes the terminology for “force” as the current definition in E1823 is clearly circular. The discussion unique to E1049 was removed since it is not applicable because E1049 (correctly) uses “load” not “force”. This discussion is under the term “load” in E1823. E1823 will be changed and the definitions in the other standards will be editorially changed in E2472 and E2760 as shown below.
