Tensile strain, Mechanical Engineering

Tensile Strain:

When the tensile load acts on body then there will be decrease in cross sectional area and an increase in length of body. The ratio of increase in length to original length is called as tensile strain.

The strain is caused in the direction of application of load is called as longitudinal strain. Another term lateral strain is strain in direction perpendicular to the application of load that is, δD/D
