German term or phrase: Schulterstaebchen
These are samples used for tensile strength testing. Are these the same as the dog bone-shaped samples?

Explanation:
I would say yes, you could use dog-bone shaped bar. See reference below for a drawing of a "schulterstabe". Alternatively, you might use the "dumb-bell shaped bar" I suggested.
