maximum stress


maximum stress
in the testing of the strength of steel a sample is machined into a standard test piece and is stretched in a tensile testing machine until it breaks. The results are expressed in N/mm2 and is the value of the maximum load reached in the test divided by the original cross sectional area of the specimen.
