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.

Ultimate Tensile Strength formula

\(\large{ UTS = \frac{ P_{max} }{ A } }\)

Where:

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

\(\large{ A }\) = cross-section of origional area

\(\large{ P_{max} }\) = maximum load
