Static Tensile Loading

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Structural Engineering

Static tensile loading, abbreviated as \( f_t \), is the mechanical force applied slowly to an object or assembly. 

 

static Tensile Loading formula

\(\large{ f_t = \frac{P}{A_c} }\) 

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ f_t }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = tensile stress \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section \(\large{ ft^2}\) \(\large{ m^2}\)
\(\large{ P }\) = load \(\large{ lbf }\) \(\large{N}\)
