Tension testing is a standard method used for determining the tensile properties of a material. Additionally, tension tests (run to failure) provide failure surfaces that can be used for fractographic analysis, which can in turn be used for calibrating the macroscale plasticity-damage model using DMGfit.

Figure 1. Tension test performed on an Instron 5882 using A7 steel. Notice the necking that occurs toward the end of the gif, which illustrates the ductility of the material.
