Description: This interactive animation presents the basic principles of strain hardening in terms of a standard tensile test. A specimen of standard dimensions is subjected to a gardually increasing load (force) and the extension measured as a function of the force. In the animation these are converted to stress and strain and plotted graphically.
Keywords: hardening • tensile test
