ASTM A931 covers the tension testing of wire ropes and strand. This ASTM standard test covers steel wire rope at room temperature. The mechanical material properties are determined using a tension test. The purpose of the tensile test is to determine the breaking force, yield strength, elongation, and modulus of elasticity. To guarantee an accurate test the appropriate gripping method should be used as to not damage the wire rope. Damage of the steel wire rope will negatively affect the results of the tensile test.
