# Tensile test raw data

Tensile Tesy ExperimentOne material property that is widely used and tejsile is the strength of a material. The material has known dimensions, like length and cross-sectional area. We then begin to apply weight to the material gripped at one end while the other end is fixed. We keep increasing the weight (often called the load or force) while at the same time measuring the change in length of the sample. It was invented by Charles Huston who described it in an article in the Journal of the Franklin Institute in 1879.
