  Tensile Properties
A tensile test is a fundamental mechanical test where a carefully prepared specimen is loaded in a very controlled manner while measuring the applied load and the elongation of the specimen over some distance.
Tensile tests are used to determine the modulus of elasticity, elastic limit, elongation, proportional limit, reduction in area, tensile strength, yield point, yield strength and other tensile properties.
From this point on in the tensile test, some permanent deformation occurs in the specimen and the material is said to react plastically to any further increase in load or stress.

 The Ductile Iron News - New Developments in Sand Testing
Tensile strength has been the conventional test used to control the strength characteristics of the sand, but the tensile strength test is quite variable as far as repeatability, and is not sensitive enough to humidity which can cause deterioration of cores.
In this test, two standard test specimens are rotated in a screen for one minute, and the weight percent of sand that abrades from the surface is measured.
This test is very similar to the old mold permeability test, except that the readings are the reverse (dense molds have lower permeabilities), and the MQI package is more portable and uses more modern technology including a digital readout.

Thus, the sample used for tensile testing would not be expected to deteriorate as much as the condom tip, which is not protected within the roll.
Also, the tensile test measures the condom in an area and direction that are not the most critical to condom performance during use.
For example, in the leakage test, in a group of 315 condoms selected for testing from a batch of 150,001 to 500,000 manufactured condoms (a standard test size), a 0.40 AQL allows acceptance of the entire batch if three condoms fail the test; if four fail, the entire batch is rejected.

 Tensile stress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tensile stress (or tension) is the stress state leading to expansion; that is, the length of a material tends to increase in the tensile direction.
In the uniaxial manner of tension, tensile stress is induced by pulling forces across a bar, specimen, etc. Tensile stress is the opposite of compressive stress.
Tensile stress may be increased until the reach of tensile strength, namely the limit state of stress.

A tensile test, also known as tension test, is probably the most fundamental type of mechanical test you can perform on material.
Tensile tests are simple, relatively inexpensive, and fully standardized.
For most tensile testing of materials, you will notice that in the initial portion of the test, the relationship between the applied force, or load, and the elongation the specimen exhibits is linear.

Split Tensile strength is a measure of a material's ability to resist a diametric compressive force.
This test is usually used in accordance to masonry or concrete testing and is very similar to the tensile strength to metallic materials and plastics.

 tensile testing, failure analyses, tensile test experts,
Tensile properties are one of the most important aspect of qualifying a compound or plastic resin.
Tensile testing is defined as determining the force required to elongate the specimen and recording how much the material has elongated until it breaks (failure).
Another aspect of tensile testing is Modulus (elastic) which is the ratio of the applied stress to the strain it produces in the region in which strain is linearly proportional to stress.

The test is used to directly or indirectly measure the most important material properties such as yield strength, tensile strength, elastic modulus, elongation, resilience, and toughness.
In this test, a prepared material sample (i.e., a specimen) is axially loaded in tension, and it is pulled until it fractures.
When the screen asks to return the crosshead of the tensile testing machine to initial position Click “CANCEL” (we do not want the crosshead to go back because the specimen is elongated now and as we return the crosshead it might cause damage).

The Superpave Indirect Tensile Test (IDT) is used to determine the creep compliances and indirect tensile strengths of asphalt mixtures at low and intermediate pavement temperatures.
Indirect tensile strengths at temperatures in the range of -10 to 30°C are used for fatigue cracking analyses.
The indirect tensile strength of the specimen for thermal cracking analyses is determined by applying a load at a rate of 12.5 mm per minute of crosshead movement until the load starts to decrease because of specimen failure.

After the sample has failed and the test is complete the data is transferred to a computer, where it can be treated and presented as a stress-strain curve.
The test is performed at different strain rates in order to demonstrate the time-dependence of the sample's behaviour.
No cold drawing is observed at the higher strain rate as it is not slow enough for the polymer chains within the sample to disentangle and reorganise themselves parallel to the direction of applied stress; at the lower strain rate there is enough time for cold drawing to occur.

Usually measured by placing a standard test piece in the jaws of a tensile machine, gradually separating the jaws, and measuring the stretching force necessary to break the test piece.
Tensile strength is commonly expressed as pounds (or tons) per square inch of original cross section.
The percentage of tin is usually kept as low as possible because of its high cost; however, about 15% is normally necessary in order to obtain proper coating of the steel, since pure lead does not alloy with iron and some surface alloying is necessary for proper adhesion.

 Introduction to the Tensile Test
The tensile test is probably the simplest and most widely used test to characterize the mechanical properties of a material.
Usually the cross-section of the truss members are determined by using the moduli and yield strength obtained from tensile tests, requiring that all members behave elastically and not deflect by significant amounts.
In this tutorial we will describe the tensile test, the material moduli and other strength properties that can be obtained from the results of the test, the classification of material behavior, and load measurement using the load cell.

The ideal tensile specimen should duplicate the pure basic metal or plastic being tested with a total absence of tool marks, incipient cracks, induced stresses, internal deformation or heat distortion.
Templates for the most common metal and non-metallic physical test specimens, including tensile, flexural, tensile-impact and compression standards, are in stock for quick delivery; others are made to order.
To prepare a test specimen, a rough sheared or sawn strip is inserted into the template between the upper and lower guide bars and is not removed from the template until both sides of the specimen are completely machined, reducing the possibility of operator error.
