Revision of D7205/D7205M-21 Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Fiber Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composite Bars


This revision to D7205 changes the definition of Pmax from the “maximum load observed during the test” to the “ultimate tensile force carried by the test coupon” and is detailed below. The change is essentially editorial and is made to harmonize D7205 with the GFRP Bar Specification, D7957, and to avoid any confusion in applying the specification.
