Ultimate Tensile Strength

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

ultimate tensile strength 1Ultimate tensile strength, abbreviated as UTS, also called tensile strength or ultimate strength, is the maximum stress a material can resist before it starts to elongate.

 

FORMULAS THAT USE Ultimate Tensile Strength

\(\large{ UTS = \frac{ F }{ A_c } }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ UTS }\) = ultimate tensile stress

\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section of material

\(\large{ F }\) = force or maximum load
