Pagination or Media Count:
The patent describes a horizontal loading fixture for sustained load testing of a specimen having a system of lever arms and a tapered element through which a vertical tensile force on the tapered element produces a horizontal tensile load at the specimen. Because of this arrangement the gripping members for holding the specimen as well as any measurement equipment may be located outside the corrosive media surrounding the specimen tested.
