Can someone clarify the meaning and purpose of the "A5 elongation" designation that seems to be common on european specs,..I understand it uses a gage length calculated from the cross section size. However,is it specific to a certain type of tensile specimen(s) or is it a generic elongation calculation that can be applicable to any type specimen dimension(ASTM E8, ISO 80, JIS #5,...)
