Components of a Stress-Strain Curve

We often forget the elements of a stress-strain curve, relying too much on software to do it for us.

But if you don't understand these elements, you can't check to see if the software analyzed the curve correctly (trust me, I've seen many mis-interpretations).

This video is a quick reminder of all the rich information you can gather from a stress-strain curve. Use this knowledge when performing tensile & elongations, compression, or flexural tests.
