1.1 These test methods cover the tension testing of wrought and cast aluminum- and magnesium-alloy products, excepting aluminum foil, and are derived from Test Methods E 8M, which cover the tension testing of all metallic materials.
These metric test methods are the equivalents of those in Test Methods B 557, and are compatible in technical content except for the requirement of longer gage lengths for round specimens.
Exceptions to the provisions of these test methods may need to be made in individual specifications or test methods for a particular material.
