Of or pertaining to extension; as, tensile strength.
The ability that a material has to be stretched.
Pertaining to forces on a body that tend to stretch, or elongate, the body. A rope or wire under load is subject to tensile forces.
the force required to pull a piece of paper to failure
the quality or degree of a substance to withstand tension The alloy was tensile enough to be stretched and molded. tense (adj), tensileness (n), tension (n)
of or relating to tension; "tensile stress"; "tensile pull"
The act of stretching of material. Tensile forces can cause joints to open and may release blocks causing rock falls.
Pulling (strength or stress).
Pertaining to the stress (i.e., tension) resulting from the elongation of an elastic body.
Of or relating to tension; able to be stretched or extended.
strength - The strength of a material when tested by pulling. In the absorbent tissue paper industry, this is usually reported as the maximum load that a one-inch wide specimen can bear before rupture, averaged over a number of specimens. The test can be done while the paper is dry or re-wetted (see wet strength). In most products, the test result is very dependent upon which direction the paper is pulled. The Machine Direction Tensile strength (MDT) is usually much greater than the Cross Direction Tensile strength (CDT). There are two other measurements that are often provided by the machine that performs the tensile test: Stretch and Energy. Of these, Machine Direction Stretch (MDS) is usually considered to be the most useful, and it is reported as the percentage of elongation of the test specimen at the moment that peak load occurred.
The greatest longitudinal stress a substance can withstand without rupture.
Pertaining to a condition of stretching.
