MTS Insight 810 Materials Testing System

Tensile testing is conducted on a wide variety of materials to determine properties such as ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and elongation at fracture. Various classes of materials have unique requirements with respect to specimen geometry, specimen gripping, test procedures and results that are determined. In general, however, tensile tests involve the application of a monotonic load or displacement to the specimen to the point of fracture.
