Standard Test Method for Tensile Strength of Monolithic Advanced Ceramics at Elevated Temperatures
|Publication Date:||10 February 1997|
|ICS Code (Advanced ceramics):||81.060.30|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of tensile strength under uniaxial loading of monolithic advanced ceramics at elevated temperatures. This test method addresses, but is not restricted to, various suggested test specimen geometries as listed in the appendix. In addition, specimen fabrication methods, testing modes (load displacement, or strain control), testing rates (load rate, stress rate, displacement rate, or strain rate), allowable bending, and data collection and reporting procedures are addressed. Tensile strength as used in this test method refers to the tensile strength obtained under uniaxial loading.
