Tensile test curve
It is unique for each material and is found by recording the amount of deformation (strain) at distinct intervals of tensile or compressive loading (stress). ITensile testing on a coir composite. The results from the test 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. The material has known dimensions, like length and cross-sectional area.
We then begin to apply weight to the material gripped at one end while the other end is fixed. We keep increasing the weight (often called the load or force) while at the same time measuring the change in length of the sample. Tensile TestOne can do a very simplified test at.
