# What is the tensile strength of wood?

The tensile strength of a material is the value at which the material fails when subjected to a tensile force. (Tensile means a force pulling the wood fibers lengthwise, as opposed to a compressive force.) There are a lot of different types and load cases for wood, so there is not one answer to this question. For example, wood used outside will fail at a lower load than wood inside. Wood is also anisotropic, i.e. it has different strength in different directions. Example values of tensile strength vary anywhere from 175 pounds per square inch for Utility Grade pine to 1400 psi for Dense Select Structural grade Douglas Fir. A good reference for material strength data for most species and grades of commerically available wood can be found in the American Institute of Timber Construction handbook.

### Is wood high tensile?

Wood has relatively low tensile strength - about 7 MPa (6000 psi) compared to say steel which is 70MPa (60,000 psi) or more.However, wood has a higher strength to weight ratio than most other materials since it has such low density. Read More

### Which is weaker shear strength or tensile strength or compressive strength?

That all depends on the material For most all metals, tensile strength is stronger by about factor of 1.7 For most metals tensile strength is equal to compression strength For concrete, both comppression strength and shear strength are higher than tensile strength For many composites, tensile strenght is higherthan compression strength Read More

### What is the tinsel strength of steel?

You mean tensile strength. Different steels have different tensile strengths. The way they are made (drawn, cast, forged, etc.) is critically important to the tensile strength. By the way--steel is more important for its stiffness than its tensile strength. Read More

tensile strength is approximately between .08 to .15 of compression strength in concrete Read More

### Tensile strength of aluminium?

i understand that this is not a real answer but i too am looking for an answer to this question, and it depends on whether you mean its ultimate tensile strength or its yield tensile strength. though i have found a value of 180MPa for its tensile strength, it is unclear for which meaning this result applies and is useless to me but may help you. Read More

### If an item can withstand 300000 PSI of pressure what is its Tensile Strength?

Your question is vague. Any way if it can withstand 300000 PSI the tensile strength is higher than that. It depends on the material since Tensile strength is known as ultimate tensile strength at which level the item fails. Read More

### What is differences between compressive strength and splitting tensile strength?

compressive strength is the actual strength of material and splitting tensile strength is result obtained from splitting hammer Read More

### What is the equation for breaking strength conversion to tensile strength they aren't the same are they?

well refering to breaking strength and tensile strength, there are alot of similarities but this doesnt mean thet are the same for tensile strength the easier of the two equations its T.S= force/ area. Read More

### How do you convert brinell hardness number to ultimate tensile strength?

Ultimate Tensile Strength is the (BHN*500) Read More

### Does heat reduce the tensile strength of metal?

Heating a metal decreases the tensile strength and increases ductility Read More

### What metal that are tensile?

All metals have a tensile strength. The strength varies with the metal and with such factors as temperature and additives. Read More

### Is tear resistance is same with tensile bond strength?

tear resistance is not the same as tensile bond strength. Read More

### What is the difference between flexural strength and tensile strength?

Flexural strength is resistance offered against bending.Tensile strength is resistance offered against tensile force. Read More

### What is the difference between tensile force and tensile strength?

Obviously force is a force. Strength would be the ability of something (say a rod) to withstand that force. Pull on a rod your putting a tensile force on it. That rod does not break because it has tensile strength. Read More

### What is tensile strength?

The tensile strength of some thing is it's ability to withstand pulling. For instance, the polymers of Kevlar are tightly bound therefore it has a high tensile strength because it does not easily pull apart. Read More

### What metal has the lowest tensile strength?

Mercury has zero tensile strength, as it is a liquid at room temperature. Read More

### What is the difference between yield strength and tensile strength?

Yield strength is a form of tensile strength, as yield strength is maximum strength upto which a material retains its original shape or it is in elastisity above which it will in plasticity. Read More

### Why steel is used to reinforce concrete?

Concrete has high compressive strength but its tensile strength is minimum.So to give tensile strength to concrete steel is used. Read More
