The imminent release of ISO 6892-1:2016 will provide further clarification on the significant changes that were introduced in ISO 6892-1:2009, including the testing rates based on strain rate (Method A). To better clarify the requirements of Method A, ISO 6892-1:2016 now includes two clearly defined approaches, Method A1 (Closed-Loop Strain Control) and Method A2 (Constant Crosshead Separation Rate).

This whitepaper provides an in-depth description of how the new standard replaces both the previous version of ISO 6892 and the widely-used EN 10002-1:2001 standard. It is highly relevant reading for anyone performing tensile tests on metallic materials. Instron testing machines are able to meet the demanding requirements of ISO 6892-1:2009, both Method A, based on strain rate control, and Method B, based on stress rate.
