A tensile test, also known as tension test, is probably the most fundamental type of mechanical test you can perform on material. 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. AWT is capable of machining and testing various specimen types at loads up to 225,000 pounds. Testing performed per various specifications, such as ASTM A370, ASTM E8, ASME Section VIII, AWS D1.1, and many others.
