ASTM B557 – 15 :Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing Wrought and Cast Aluminum- and Magnesium-Alloy Products
These test methods cover the tension testing of wrought and cast aluminum- and magnesium-alloy products, with the exception of aluminum foil, and are derived from Test Methods , which cover the tension testing of all metallic materials.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
NOTE 1: Foil is sheet metal less than 0.0079 in. thick. There is an overlap in the thickness range 0.006 to 0.0079 in. defined for foil and sheet. Sheet products in this thickness range are supplied to sheet product specifications and foil products in this thickness range are supplied to foil product specifications. Exceptions to the provisions of these test methods may need to be made in individual specifications or test methods for a particular material.
NOTE 2: A complete metric companion to Test Methods has been developed—Test Methods ; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in these test methods.
