ASTM C1273 determines the tensile strength under uniaxial loading of monolithic advanced ceramics at ambient temperatures. This addresses, but is not restricted to, various suggested test specimen geometries as listed in the official standard. In addition, test specimen fabrication methods, testing modes (force, displacement, or strain control), testing rates (force rate, stress rate, displacement rate, or strain rate), allowable bending, and data collection and reporting procedures are addressed. Note that tensile strength as used in this test method refers to the tensile strength obtained under uniaxial loading.
