What is the ASTM Standard for Universal Testing Machine?

ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) has many standards and test methods, including standards for universal testing machines. The standards for universal testing machines mainly include the following two:

Here are some examples related to ASTM standards for universal testing machines:

1. ASTM E4-16a - This is the standard test method for testing the mechanical properties of metals, plastics, rubber, fabrics, paper, electronic materials, and other materials. It covers the requirements and regulations for various types of tests such as tension, compression, bending and shear on universal testing machines.

2. ASTM D3039/D3039M-08 - This is the standard test method for measuring the tensile properties of composite laminates and laminate core materials. This standard covers specific requirements and provisions for tensile testing of composite materials on universal testing machines.

ASTM has many other standards related to materials testing and mechanical property testing, some of which may involve the use of universal testing machines. Which ASTM standard to use depends on the type of material you are testing and the properties of interest. Therefore, when selecting the appropriate ASTM standard, further research and consultation based on your specific testing needs and material type is recommended.
