Static Weighing, Constant-Rate-of-Grip Separation Test – This test method employs a constant rate of separation of the grips holding the ends of the test specimen. Specimen extension may be measured in these test methods by grip separation, extension indicators, or displacement of gage marks.
A procedure for determining the tensile modulus of elasticity is included at one strain rate.
Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
This test method is similar to ISO 527-3, but is not considered technically equivalent. ISO 527-3 allows for additional specimen configurations, specifies different test speeds, and requires an extensometer or gage marks on the specimen.
