Tensile testing, is also known as tension testing, in which a sample is subjected to a controlled tension until failure. 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 . Properties that are directly measured via a tensile test are ultimate tensil strength, maximum elongation and reduction in area. From these measurements the following properties can also be determined: Young modules,poission’s ratio,yield strength and strain hardening characteristics. Uniaxial tensile testing is the most commonly used for obtaining the mechanical characteristics of isotopic materials.
