Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques that are used in the science and technology industries to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. As NDT does not permanently damage the item that is being tested, it is a highly valuable technique as it saves money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting and research. NDT is commonly used in forensic engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, systems engineering, medicine, art and many more. It is highly effective in the medical industry, especially medical imaging.

Tensile testing, also known as tension testing, is a fundamental materials science and engineering test in which a sample is subjected to a controlled tension until failure. Properties that are directly measured via a tensile test are ultimate tensile strength, breaking strength, maximum elongation and reduction in area. From these measurements the following properties can also be determined: Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, yield strength and strain-hardening characteristics. Uniaxial tensile testing is the most commonly used for obtaining the mechanical characteristics of isotropic materials. Some materials use biaxial tensile testing.
