At a fixed tensile speed and a constant temperature, a tensile specimen is strained up to break by uniaxial static tensile force.
Tensile test provides yield, ultimate tensile and break stresses, deformation ratios, E-modulus, tensile toughness, resilience etc. These results have been used for quality control, material selection for any application and to predict how the material will behave under other forces.
