In this study, we tried to establish the method of evaluating the tensile properties of the ring specimen of Arsene which have gauge length. In this result, we verified the availability of central piece. We made ring specimens and devices such as central piece, pins, and clevises. A proper tensile speed was determined by pre-test. The result of main test was calibrated and compared with the result of FEM. To obtain the tensile properties from the ring test result, we observed two relationships: one is strain-displacement and the other is load ratio-displacement. The tensile properties could be evaluated by using these relationships.
