Micro tensile test specimen dimensions
Tensile testing on a coir composite. The results from the test are commonly used to select micro tensile test specimen dimensions material for an application, for quality control, and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces. In some cases, the application or availability of a material will require fimensions a Microtensile specimen be tested. Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method.
If there are no material specifications, then the default conditions herein apply. Table 1 of Classification System D0 lists the ASTM materials standards that currently exist. In general, this test method is superseded for general use specmen either Test Methods D882 or Test Method D38. The very small Type V specimen in Test Method D38 is the recommended specimen when limited amounts of material are available. This information may be useful in comparisons of materials, alloy development, quality control, and design under certain circumstances.
The gauge length is the most significant dif.
