ASTM A1044 standard specification measures the tensile strength of steel stud assemblies for shear reinforcement of concrete. Tests may measure strength of weld or crimp. In this test, the tensile test machine will pull the head of the stud until it breaks off the shaft. Extensometers, such as the E3475, can be helpful in measuring precise test points for your data reports.
For ASTM A1044, the tensile requirements are 65 ksi, yield strength is 51 ksi, and elongation should be greater than 20 percent. Use a 315 Family Tensile Test Machine equipped with our G565 Series Tensile Buttonhead Holder, created for quick sample loading.
