The tension testing of metallic shouldered end specimens are commonly performed using test methods such as ASTM E8. These machined specimens often come in the form of a “Dumbbell”, “Dogbone”, or “Button End” and use the specialized ends for unique gripping needs during testing. These test methods cover the tension testing of metallic materials in any form at room temperature, specifically, the methods of determination of yield strength, yield point elongation, tensile strength, elongation, and reduction of area.
