What does PSI Tensile mean?

The number of Pounds per Square Inch (PSI) for the Tensile strength.


What do you mean by minimum tensile strength?

Tensile strength is determined from testing a large number of samples. Some will fail higher or lower than others, and an average strength is determined. Minimum tensile strength is usually calculated from statistics using a Weibull probability analysis. In this case the minimum tensile strength usually is reported as the Weibull A value, which is the value at which 99% will survive with 95% confidence. Weibull B, usually based on fewer samples, is the minimum value determined to survive with 90% reliability and 95 % confidence.


How do you use tensile?

If you mean tensile strength, this is the highest strength a material can handle in a tension aspect. A good experiment to determine the tensile strength of a material is to buy a tin cord. You can tie the tin cord on one end to a tree or anything high enough. On the other end you can tie some weight to it, the tin will elongate until it breaks. you need to make 2 marks on the tin cord and measure the distance between the (make them near the center of the cord). With this you can add weight and when the material breaks this is a good approximation of the tensile strength of the material. Also by measuring the distance between the 2 lines you can find the elongation of the material at a given force.Have fun


What does KSI mean when it pertains to tensile strength?

It's a unit. 1 KSI = 1000 PSI. It is just used to 'neaten' the numbers: 70 KSI rather than 70,000 PSI for example.


What does the grade of stainless steel mean?

It's the yield strength

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.


When looking at tensile strength what do the letters MD and TD mean?

md means polymer orientation in machine direction & td means the same in transverse direction.


What is the strength of the 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.

What does tensile strength of anything mean?

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.


What does low tensile strength mean?

Its to do with tension, it doesn't take much strength to break it


What is the SI unit for strength?

If you mean force, the SI unit is the newton. If you mean the strength of a material - its ability to withstand force - there are different types of strength: look up Compressive strength, Tensile strength, Shear strength. For example, the units for tensile strength are newtons / square meter.


What is tensile strength mean?

It is the strength in pounds per square inch of a material at which it will be pulled apart.
