Tensile/tension testing is a destructive test whereby controlled tension is applied to a sample either as a load for proof testing or until it fully fails. This is used to find out how strong a material is and how much it can be stretched before it breaks. This test method is used to determine yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, ductility, strain hardening characteristics, elasticity modulus and Poisson’s ratio.
