The aim of this research project is to characterise automated tensile testing in terms of procedures applied and accuracies attained, and thereby to investigate methods to decrease the influence of measuring equipment and data processing on the results of automated tensile testing. By comparing manually and automatically obtained results it is found that, provided a univocal procedure can be adopted, software algorithms for automated tensile testing can be developed which estimate the required parameters with sufficient accuracy. In some cases signal noise suppression is necessary. Computing time is not a critical parameter. Since the equipment's dynamic behaviour as well as the compliance and lining of the testing machine may play an important role, verification procedures are described involving the actual testing practice rather than static conditions.
