Tensile testing, is also known as tension testing is a fundamental materials science test in which a sample is subjected to a controlled tension until failure. The results from the test are commonly used to select a material for an application, for quality control, and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces. In this tutorial, first we are going to model specimen geometry in CAD software then we will apply composite layers in ACP tools. In the next step, we are going to model two metal parts and then at the end we will combine models into static structural. Meshes can be imported into Mechanical from multiple systems. It is possible to combine composite shell, composite solid, and non-layered shell and solid meshes to perform mixed analysis.
