Tensile Testing

A prepared sample of material is pulled apart under an axial load, determining the yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation of the material.

Tensometer

In the tensile test, a prepared sample of material is pulled apart under an axial load. The yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation may all be determined from this test. For sheet, plate and bar samples the sample preparation is straightforward, for other sample shapes, however, a great deal of machining may be required to produce a suitable tensile specimen.
