About the book

Tensile testing is one of the crucial factors for the design, manufacturing, quality control and estimation of the life expectancy of engineering products and industrial plants. Tensile testing plays a most important role in the selection of engineering materials, development of new materials and processes and quality assurance (material specification). Tensile testing is also frequently used for the prediction of the material's behavior under various types of load and environmental/application conditions. Tensile testing defines the safety factors along with cautions in engineering designs.

In this book we will try to cover most of the topics related to tensile testing. These topics will include the introduction to tensile testing, tensile testing equipment, tensile measuring, and data analysis software, tensile testing behavior of conventional and advanced engineering and biomaterials, tensile testing of engineering designs, the applications of tensile testing and effects of tensile loads on materials properties. It is expected that this book will be very attractive for undergraduate and graduate engineering students. Moreover, this book will be equally beneficial for design, production, processing, quality control, material testing, and safety engineers.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
