Manufacturing Company, physical testing is
performed to verify conformance to the customers
required mechanical properties. Physical tests
performed include tensile testing and Charpy
V-Notch impact testing.
A tensile test,
also known as tension test, is probably the most
fundamental type of mechanical test you can
perform on material. Tensile tests are simple,
relatively inexpensive, and fully standardized.
By pulling on something, you will very quickly
determine how the material will react to forces
being applied in tension. As the material is
being pulled, you will find its strength along
with how much it will elongate.
