Tensile testing is a common analysis technique used to determine metal yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and elastic modulus. You will learn how tests are performed, test sample preparation, and interpreting the date. This course was revised and updated October 2022.
What you’ll learn about tensile testing
The following aspects of tensile testing are taught in this course:
How tensile testing is performed
How tensile tests samples are prepared
How stress and strain are calculated
Determining yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and elastic modulus from a stress-strain curve.
Factors that influence tensile test results
The course takes about 1 hour to complete and consists of one module and a final exam. Also, a quiz and problems give you opportunities to apply the concepts taught.
