Tensile test data for aluminium
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. For anisotropic materials, such as composite materials and tTensile Test ExperimentOne material property that is widely used and recognized is the strength of a material. 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.
