Stress-Strain Curve

stress-strain curve

The stress-strain curve is a graph of stress as a function of strain. It can be constructed from data obtained in any mechanical test where load is applied to a material, and continuous measurements of stress and strain are made simultaneously. It is constructed for compression, tension and torsion tests. The graph shows a typical … Read more
