Tensile testing, commonly known as tension testing is a fundamental engineering test where sample materials are subjected to a controlled tension. The process in entirety is aimed at obtaining mechanical features of isotropic materials.
Tensile Testing Machine helps to determine the effectiveness and behavior of materials when subjected to a stretching force. The tests are effected under controlled optimum temperatures, and pressure conditions aimed at determining the maximum strength a material can withstand.
During testing, the material in question is subjected to tensile force while measuring its appropriate response to stress as such, determining the length of the material and its elongation ability. By determining the required material elongation force, its material properties can be determined. The features, in turn, are essential to designers and managers as they help them predict how materials and products behavior in their intended applications.
