ASTM E292 covers the standard test methods for conducting time-for-rupture notch tension test of materials. Tension testing a notched specimen is often performed to determine how well a material can distribute stresses around a stress concentration. Under the tensile load, a notched test specimen will be under multi-axial stresses that result in local deformations that distribute the multi-axial stresses. The rupture life is an indication of how well a material distributes the multi-axial stresses. The test to determine the rupture time will apply a constant load and temperature until rupture.
