Elastic Limit Testing

Elastic Limit is defined as the point where a material can be stretched without causing permanent changes in the materials size or shape. If a material is stretched beyond the elastic limit, permanent deformation of the material will occur. Universal test machines are commonly used to perform this type of test along with certain accessories such as extensometers so that highly accurate stress-strain measurements can be obtained. United offers a large selection of equipment that will help you achieve accurate and repeatable results if you are considering performing this type of test.
