Tensile Strength

The ultimate strength of a material prior to fracture when subjected to an increasing tension load.

For brittle solids: ceramics, glasses and brittle polymers - it is much less than the compressive elastic limit. For metals, ductile polymers and most composites - it is larger than the yield strength by a factor ranging from 1.1 to 3.
