Elongation

This term is used on orders specifying tensile test in which a minimum elongation between given points and distances has to be met. Elongation is the amount of extension a test specimen undergoes to fracture during tensile testing. This elongation is expressed as percent of stretch over a given length, i.e. 25% elongation in 2 inches.
