Tensile test - Dixie Southern

Tensile test

A fundamental materials science test in which a sample is subjected to uniaxial tension until failure. Test results are commonly used to select a material for an application, for quality control and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces. Properties that are directly measured via a tensile test are ultimate tensile strength, maximum elongation and reduction in area.
