Tensile testing is a way of determining how materials will react when they are pulled apart or pushed together - when a tension force is applied. It is one of the simplest and most widely used mechanical tests. By measuring the force required to elongate a specimen to breaking point, material properties can be determined that will allow designers and quality managers to predict how materials and products will behave in their intended applications.
