This table gives the computed minimum % elongation value for each 1⁄32 in. [0.79 mm] decrease in wall thickness. Where the wall thickness lies between two values above, the minimum elongation value is determined by the following equations:

Direction of Test

Equation

Longitudinal

E= 48t + 15.00

Transverse

E= 32t + 10.00

where:

E = elongation in 2 in. or [50 mm], %, and

t = actual thickness of specimen, in. [mm].
