Best practices for addressing the challenges of testing rebar to global standards that specify mechanical properties and testing requirements.
A custom Industrial Series horizontal frame is ideal for testing large structural steel shapes (such as W and S shapes)to ASTM A370 and EN 10002-1.
Universal Spherical Tension Adapters used with the Industrial Series 300 LX load frame allow for testing of shouldered end specimens and follow ASTM E8.
EN 10002-1 determines tensile testing of metals including metallic sheets, wire, bar, and tubes at ambient temperature by straining the specimen until it fractures.
