The test method is based on gripping a specimen, 200 mm wide and containing a joint/seam, across its entire width in the clamps of a tensile testing machine, operated at a prescribed rate of extension, and application of a longitudinal force (perpendicular to the seam axis) until the joint/seam ruptures. Procedures for measuring the tensile properties of both conditioned and wet specimens are included.
