An elevated temperature tensile test is carried out to assess the strength of material intended for high temperature applications. During the test, a specimen machined from the material is evaluated under controlled heat and tension or load conditions. Laboratory Testing Inc. places the test specimen inside a furnace, which then heats the specimen to the desired temperature. The next step is loading the specimen into the test frame, where an extensometer measures strain levels as the load is increased.
Laboratory Testing Inc. uses state-of-the-
