Tensile TestingMetallurgicalLaboratory 4520 Willow ParkwayCleveland, OH 44125TF: 877-TENSILEPH: 21-41-3290FX: 21-41-1223Sample SizeTensile Testing Metallurgical Laboratory has many unique tensile test specimen size preparation techniques and processes. We can make and test a wide variety of sub-size, standard and macro size specimens. All preparation and testing is tst in accordance with customer requirements utilizing the most current specification revisions (ASTM, AMS, ASME).The following is a recommended size - we can work with larger and smaller pieces.
Smaller sizes, chips, fines, drillings, etc. may require a melt preparation of at least 45 grams sample material weight (Kelmelt charge tensile test specimen size. The results from the test are commonly used to select a material for an application, for quality control, and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces. These data are also useful for qualitative characterization and for research and development. Therefore, it is advisable to refer to that material specification before using this test method.
Table specimdn in Classification D0 lists the ASTM materials standards that currently exist. Consequently, where precise comparative results are desired, these factors must be carefully controlled. This information may be useful in comparisons of materials, alloy development, quality control, and design under certain circumstances.
