Specify non-proportional extension strength

With the development of science and technology and the progress of society, the performance testing of mechanical materials has become more and more important. Mechanical property testing is a method to evaluate the performance and stability of materials under stress. In this paper, we will focus on one of the indicators in mechanical property testing: non-proportional elongation strength.

1. What is non-proportional elongation strength?

Non-proportional elongation strength (Proof Strength) is the ability of a material to continue to extend without deformation after the stress exceeds the proportional limit. It is one of the most important indicators of a material's resistance to deformation, and is usually labeled as strength.

2. Role of non-proportional elongation strength

Evaluating a material's resistance to plastic deformation

Non-proportional elongation strength assesses the ability of a material to resist plastic deformation. When a material is subjected to an external force that exceeds the proportional limit, the material will deform plastically. Measurement of non-proportional elongation strength provides information that helps engineers and researchers understand how much a material will deform under normal operating conditions, as well as its reliability and durability.

Effective Prediction of Material Mechanical Properties

Non-proportional elongation strength can also be used as one of the indicators to effectively predict the mechanical properties of a material. By testing and measuring non-proportional elongation strength, information can be gained about a material's durability, flexural strength, and fatigue properties. This helps engineers and designers to select appropriate materials and design products rationally.

3. How is non-proportional elongation tested?

Non-proportional elongation strength is usually tested using a tensile testing machine. In this test, a sample of material is stretched, gradually increasing the force and measuring the deformation of the material. The sign of non-proportional elongation is reached when the stress in the material exceeds the proportional limit. The test results are usually presented in the form of a standard mechanical property curve.
