#### Transcript of TENSILE STRENGTH OF PLANT FIBERS

Tension force and Tensile strength of Plant Fibers often used in the Philippines for rope, textiles, etc. TENSION FORCE
and
TENSILE STRENGTH measures the force required to pull something such as rope, wire, or a structural beam to the point where it breaks.

The tensile strength of a material is the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can take before failure, for example breaking.

Three(3) typical definitions of tensile strength:

1. Yield strength - The stress a material can withstand without permanent deformation. This is not a sharply defined point.Yield strength is the stress which will cause a permanent deformation of 0.2% of the original dimension.

2. Ultimate strength - The maximum stress a material can withstand.

3. Breaking strength - The stress coordinate on the stress-strain curve at the point of rupture. Tension force A tensile test, also known as tension test, is probably the most fundamental type of mechanical test you can perform on material.
Tensile tests are simple, relatively inexpensive, and fully standardized.
By pulling on something, you will very quickly determine how the material will react to forces being applied in tension.
As the material is being pulled, you will find its strength along with how much it will elongate. What is Tensile Testing? You can learn a lot about a substance from tensile testing. As you continue to pull on the material until it breaks, you will obtain a good, complete tensile profile. A curve will result showing how it reacted to the forces being applied. The point of failure is of much interest and is typically called its "Ultimate Strength" or UTS Why Perform a Tensile Test or Tension Test? 1. Abaca fiber-most abacá fiber is pulped and processed into specialty paper used in tea bags, vacuum bags, currency, and more

2. Buri fiber- economy booster of Calintaan, occ. Mindoro, used in making buntal

3. Saging fiber- high quality textiles, paper, clothing, etc. Plant fibers used for test: The force of pull supplied by strings, ropes or chains is called the tension force.
magnitude of force, and thus, measured in Newtons
always measured parallel tot he string to which it is applied. Head Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body Body
