- ASTM E8/E8M-13 Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials
- Tensile Testing (ASM Handbook)
- Rules for this report:
- Do NOT include raw data in report
- ALWAYS INDICATE UNITS
- Summarize the data recommended by ASTM E8 – YOU WILL NEED TO LOOK IT UP.
- Indicate if any data points are outliers and are removed
- Show what calculations you used.
- Show UTS on a graph
- Show .2% Offset Yield on graph
- Show Modulus of Elasticity on a graph

Gauge Length is 50.0 mm long Hardness 92 Rb Specimen Diameter is 6.37 mm (Final Diameter: 4.69) Material is AISI 4130 Normalized Steel Crosshead Speed: 2 mm/min Peak Load: 21.3 kN Fracture was cup and cone
Hint for getting your stress units to MPa:
- First, know that a pascal is one N/m2.
- Remember that to convert Pascals to MPa you divide by 1 million.
- Notice you can do this with the units.
- 1 square meter has 1 million sq mm
- So 1 MPa could be 1 million N/m2 or one N/mm2
- Now see that your are given kN/mm2.
- All you need to do is to get to our “new” definition of MPa is multiply by 1000.
- If you do this with the units, you wind up with N/mm2 which is the same as MPa.
