Revision of E6-15e4 Standard Terminology Relating to Methods of Mechanical Testing


Delete the term, “total elongation,” which is attributed to subcommittee E28.04, from E6.
The phrase “total elongation” is not defined in any E28 standard.
The phrase “total elongation” appears only three times in E28 standards, and one of them is an error.
