MATERIAL PROPERTIES 1. ACS-206 CE-ME-MECE-MSE WEEK 7 UNIT 18 . Tensile Strength and Deformation. tension. When a material is loaded in such a way that it extends it is said to be in tension . Tensile Strength and Deformation. compression.
Malleable (adj):Able to be hammered into thin sheets; capable of being extended or shaped by beating with a hammer, or by the pressure of rollers.
*Proportional (adj): The combining weight or equivalent of an element.
*Proportion (n) - proportionality (n)
Collocation: Limit of proportionality (phr.)
e.g.: All parts of the building are proportionally large.
UTS (Ultimate Tensile Strength):the maximumstress that a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before failing or breaking. Tensile strength is the opposite ofcompressivestrengthand the values can be quite different.
