STEEL — Recommended Components

Like aluminum, steel is a common structural material, particularly in the heavy transportation and infrastructure industries. And like aluminum, ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) Committee E28 on Mechanical Testing supports the effort of developing standards for mechanical testing of steel. With over 50 standards under its jurisdiction, Committee E28 has a standard test method for determining just about any physical parameter of steel. ASTM E8 (Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials) describes tension testing at room temperature. Micro-Measurements C2A-Series of foil strain gage sensors are a perfect match with this standard, and provides quick, reliable, and accurate results.
