STRETCHED BEFORE IT BREAKS
Tensile tests are performed for several reasons. The results of tensile tests are used in selecting materials for engineering applications. It is a physical form of tension testing which controlled tension is applied to a sample until it fully fails.
A tensile testing machine performs the most fundamental and common types of mechanical testing. It apply tensile (pulling) force to a material and measures the specimen’s response to the stress. By doing this, tensile tests determine how strong a material is and how much it can elongate. Tensile tests are typically conducted on electromechanical or universal testing machines, are simple to perform, and are fully standardized.
This is one of the most common mechanical testing techniques. It is used to find out how strong a material is and also how much it can be stretched before it breaks. This test method is used to determine yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, ductility, strain hardening characteristics, Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio.
The tension test related to the mechanical testing of steel products subjects a machined or full-section specimen of the material under examination to a measured load sufficient to cause rupture.
