Development of an updated single filament test standard for tensile strength determination has been undertaken by a joint government-industry task group under the auspices of the Subcommittee C28.07 of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). This update was initiated in response to a need expressed by people involved with fiber testing. A fiber testing workshop in 1991 attracted a wide range of attendees with concerns regarding the uniformity of testing methods and comparability of resulting data in the fiber literature. With the inception of a C28.07.07 Task Group for Ceramic Fibers, an effort to conduct round robin testing was begun among interested government and industrial test facilities. User surveys and discussion groups were also employed to determine areas of concern with the current standard test method, ASTM D 3379-75. Shortcomings in the current standard were identified and methods of addressing these areas were discussed with experts including fiber manufacturers, testing facilities and composite manufacturers. Among the main concerns was the method and application of fiber diameter measurements.
