Tensile Testing
 

Tensile testing involves making a test specimen. The specimen is then gripped at the ends by suitable apparatus in a tensile testing machine and an axial force exerted slowly until the specimen fails:

A graph of extension versus load is usually produced to better show the yield point, the ultimate strength and the stress at fracture.

The shape of the specimen is critical because the gripping forces can apply forces that can make the specimen fail prematurely. The specimen should be made according to the appropriate standard, for that type of material eg. ASTM E8 or D638.
