EduTechnics Engineering Tensile Tester Kit

Tensile Tester Kit



Demonstrates the principles of tensile tests on specimens of different materials, showing material behaviour in the elastic and plastic region (Young’s modulus).


This kit includes a cased tensile tester with specimens of different materials for students to stretch specimens to destruction while measuring the extension and force.

The tests introduce students to tensile test terms including:

  • Overall stress and strain
  • Yield properties
  • Tensile strength
  • Elongation

The choice of different specimens allows comparisons of different specimen material and how it affects its tensile properties.

This versatile kit is part of a series that allows many experiments using different arrangements of their parts. Students, teachers, or lecturers fit the parts of the kit to the Work Panel (ES1) (supplied separately) to study or show an engineering science topic.

TecQuipment supplies a CD-ROM with the Work Panel (ES1). It includes all the worksheets, guidance notes, and lecturer notes (with answers) needed for typical experiments with each kit. The selection of parts in the kits and the choice of fixing points on the Work Panel means that teachers or lecturers may extend the experiments to an even greater range.
