Mechanical Testing

Mechanical properties including elasticity/stiffness, yield strength, ultimate tensile strength and ductility are usually part of material specifications and are obtained by tensile testing. Other parameters tested include:

  • The relationship between stress and strain (load and elongation)
  • Hardness
  • Toughness
  • Fatigue Strength and Endurance Limit
  • Creep resistance
