AutoX750 – Should the extensometer be left on the specimen through failure?

This flyer explains the differences between: percentage of total extension at fracture (At); percentage elongation after fracture (A); Non-Proportional Elongation (NPE); and the benefits of using an Automatic Extensometer when testing to ISO 6892-1:2009 for metals applications.

Tensile Testing of Surgical Sutures

Sutures are used in a variety of different surgical procedures to close wounds and aid in tissue healing. They are manufactured from a variety of different absorbable and non-absorbable materials, and may be a single filament or braided with or without a coating. Tensile strength is a critical measure of performance during and after surgical procedures.
