A tensile test is performed at a specified crosshead speed. In the case of brittle materials, the tensile strength is reported at break. For ductile materials, the strength is reported at yield and possibly break (if achieved during the test, please note that non-ambient testing may result in no break inside the test chamber).
- ASTM D638
- ISO 527-1
Strain at Ultimate, Tensile Strength at Yield. This data appears in Matereality as Tensile Properties.
Number of times this test is repeated: 5
