Force in the direction of the force transducer's axis of measurement, above which mechanical destruction can be expected to occur. also refer to: Operating force;Â Limiting force
Average force required to break a test specimen by tension.
The measure of strength a product has.
That total force (lbs. or kg.) at which the sling fails. The total weight strain that can be applied before failure. In the USA, it is usually at five times the rated capacity; in Europe it is seven times rated capacity. Also known as Ultimate Load.
The ultimate tensile strength of a geotextile per unit width.
a) It is the optimum resultant internal force that resists rupture in a tension test. b) The load (or Force) required to break or rupture a specimen in a tensile test made according to a specified standard procedure.
The measured load required to break a fabric or rope under tension; also called tensile strength.
The measured load that is required to break a chain or wire rope.
amount of effort required to break a single strand of unknotted monofilament or braided line, usually stated in pounds (example: 6 lb. test).
Breaking Strength is the ultimate load at which a tensile failure occurs in the sample of wire rope being tested. (Note: The term breaking strength is synonymous with actual strength.) Minimum Acceptance Strength is that strength which is 2-1/2% lower than the catalog or nominal strength. This tolerance is used to offset variables that occur during a sample preparation and actual physical test of a wire rope. Nominal Strength is the published (catalog) strength calculated by a standard procedure that is accepted by the wire rope industry. The wire rope manufacturer designs wire rope to this strength, and the user should consider this strength when making design calculations.
The sum of the breaking strength in tension of all the wires of a wire rope when the wires are tested individually Critical Diameter - Diameter of the smallest bend for a given wire rope which permits the wires and strands to adjust themselves by relative movement while remaining in their normal position
Measured in pounds per inch (lb./in.). The first number will be the breaking strength in the warp direction. The second will be the fill direction. Most fabrics are stronger in the warp than the fill because higher tension is placed on the warp fiber keeping it straighter during the weaving process. Rare exceptions occur when a larger, therefore stronger thread is used in the fill direction than the warp direction. Fabrics are generally considered â€balancedâ€ if the breaking strength is within 15% warp to fill and are best in bias applications on lightweight structures. â€œUnbalancedâ€ fabrics are excellent when a greater load is required one direction and a lesser load in the perpendicular direction.
Physical property that indicates the tile's ability to withstand loads. ANSI A 137.1 requires minimum strength of 250 lbs. for floor tile.
The amount of tension required to cause material or a system to give way or collapse. It is calculated by measuring the amount of force required to fracture a uniform sized sample.
The term for flexural strength.
The effort required to break a garment sample.
