Explanation: In traction test (defined in such norms as ASTM D 638, ISO 527,UNI 5819, DIN 53455) a sample of a material to be tested is fastened to a test machine and a traction is exerted on it, while the corresponding elastic and plastic deformations are measured. Eventually the test reachs the point when the probe will break.
