Tensile Testing is a form of tension testing and is a destructive engineering and materials science test whereby controlled tension is applied to a sample until it fully fails.
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.
We Aurora do Tensile Testing with which we can find a lot about Tensile Properties of a Material while it is being pulled. When plotted on a graph, this data results in a stress/strain curve which shows how the material reacted to the forces being applied. The point of break or failure is of much interest to find the other important properties of the given material.
Through Tensile Testing we can find,
- Ultimate Tensile Strength
- Yield Strength
- Stress & Strain Curve
- Modulus of Elasticity
