Tensile testing of soft wires, cords and fibre, etc. By straining a sample, generally to break, and recording the relationship between force and extension, for the purpose of determining one or more of the following mechanical properties:

  • Elongation
  • Percentage elongation
  • Extension
  • Percentage yield point extension
  • Percentage reduction of area
  • Maximum Force
  • Stress
  • Tensile Strength
  • Yield Stress
  • Proof Stress
