This paper presents guidelines for expression of measurement uncertainty for tensile tests (tensile strength), making the Type A evaluation of uncertainty from historical data. The application of pooled standard deviation obtained from several samples and calculated on the values obtained for tensile strength, helps for a better expression of uncertainty in measurement. Accordingly, the results obtained with GUM and Monte Carlo evaluation methods were consistent.
