Total Elongation CalculatorPosted by Dinesh on
Online elongation (extensometer) calculator to calculate the percentage of total elongation at maximum force. The extensometer used shall have a gauge length of at least 100 mm. The gauge length shall be indicated in the test report.
This method consists of determining the extension at maximum force on the force-extension curve obtained with an extensometer.
The percentage total elongation at maximum force, Agt, shall be calculated by using the formula:
Agt = ?Lm / Le x 100.
Calculate Percentage of Total Elongation at Maximum Force
Agt = ( ?Lm / Le ) x 100where,
- Agt is percentage total elongation at maximum force
- ?Lm is the extension at maximum force.
- Le is the extensometer gauge length;
