tensile strength

a measure of the ability of a material to withstand a longitudinal stress, expressed as the greatest stress that the material can stand without breaking

(mechanics)
The maximum stress a material subjected to a stretching load can withstand without tearing. Also known as hot strength.

tensile strength

The resistance of a material to rupture when subject to tension; the maximum tensile stress which the material can sustain.

tensile strength
