 elongation to break Explanation:% Elongation to Break The elongation-to-break is the strain on a sample when it breaks. This usually is expressed as a percent. The elongation-to-break sometimes is called the ultimate elongation46. Fibers have a low elongation-to-break and elastomers have a high elongation-to-break47. Other possibilities I have in my notes are elongation at failure/at fracture /for metals). It will probably depend on the material you're talking about. But HTH.

From this site it seems that \"percent elongation\" is the correct term.

elongation to break

Explanation:
% Elongation to Break

The elongation-to-break is the strain on a sample when it breaks. This usually is expressed as a percent.

The elongation-to-break sometimes is called the ultimate elongation46.

Fibers have a low elongation-to-break and elastomers have a high elongation-to-break47.

Other possibilities I have in my notes are elongation at failure/at fracture /for metals). It will probably depend on the material you're talking about. But HTH.
