A complete guide to the uniaxial tensile test, the cornerstone test for determining the mechanical properties of materials:Learn ways to predict material behavior through tensile testing.Learn how to test metals, alloys, composites, ceramics, and plastics to determine strength, ductility and elastic/plastic deformation.A must for laboratory managers, technicians, materials and design engineers, and students involved with uniaxial tensile testing.Tensile Testing, Second Edition begins with an introduction and overview of the test, with clear explanations of how materials properties are determined from test results. Subsequent sections illustrate how knowledge gained through tensile tests, such as tension properties to predict the behavior (including strength, ductility, elastic or plastic deformation, tensile and yield strengths) have resulted in improvements in materals applications.The Second Edition is completely revised and updated. It includes expanded coverage throughout the volume on a variety of topics, including equipment, testing for design, and testing at extreme temperatures and high strain rates.
