One of the most significant and widely used types of mechanical testing of a material is the tensile or tension test. With the use of a tensile tester machine, a pulling force or tension is applied to a material until it fails or breaks and its response to the stress is measured. Through this test, the strength of the material can be determined, and the amount of force needed to elongate it can be measured.

Preparing Soft, Hard and Inconel Metal Tensile Specimens
Flat tensile specimen preparation machines come in different sizes with different features. Choosing one that suits your requirements can be quite confusing. If youre looking for a machine that is versatile yet priced just right according to your needs, you need to consider a few factors.
It should be able to handle soft or tough materials. Steel,...
Preparing Flat Tensile Specimens from Plastic and Composite Materials
The strength of plastic can be measured through tensile specimen preparation. Plastic and composites are some of the most widely used materials in the world. Lightweight and considerably strong, these materials have many uses and improvements have made it possible to replace traditional materials like wood and even metal.
Plastic is a polymer...
Effective Flat Tensile Sample Preparation Explained
There are several reasons why tensile tests are done. Tensile tests usually start with the specimen preparation and the results are used when choosing the materials to be used in certain engineering applications. To ensure quality, material specifications usually include its tensile properties.
When developing new processes and materials, tensile properties also...
