Revision of E9-09(2018) Standard Test Methods of Compression Testing of Metallic Materials at Room Temperature


The terminology section now includes definitions for alignment device and subpress, which are very similar, and not clearly differentiated. Historical versions of E9 contained an illustration of a subpress that was later removed, and the current version contains an illustration that is labeled as an alignment device. This work item will improve the definitions of alignment device and subpress.
