Tensile Test

What key mechanical properties can be obtained from a tensile test curve?

Hint
Hint 2
There are four key mechanical properties obtained from a tensile test curve.
There are four key mechanical properties obtained from a tensile test curve:
  • Elastic modulus
  • Ductility (also called percent elongation), which is the permanent engineering strain after failure
  • Ultimate tensile strength (also called tensile strength), which is the maximum engineering stress
  • Yield strength, which is the engineering stress at which permanent deformation is first observed, calculated by 0.2% offset method.
