Enter the ultimate force and the cross-sectional area into the calculator to determine the tensile strength.

Tensile Strength Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a tensile strength.

TS = UF / A

  • Where TS is the tensile strength
  • UF is the ultimate force
  • A is the cross sectional area the force is acting on

Tensile Strength Definition

Tensile strength is the maximum amount of tensile stress an object can withstand without see permanent deformation.

Tensile Strength Example

How to calculate the tensile strength?

  1. First, determine the ultimate force.

    Measure the ultimate force.

  2. Next, determine the area.

    Measure the cross-sectional area.

  3. Finally, calculate the tensile strength.

    Calculate the tensile strength using the equation above.

FAQ

What is a tensile strength?

Tensile strength is the maximum amount of tensile stress an object can withstand before breaking or yielding. These are sometimess referred to as the ultimate strength.

What is tensile stress?

Tensile stress is the stress caused by two forces pulling in opposite directions on an object.
