Axial Tension Force

Definition - What does Axial Tension Force mean?

Axial tension force is stress imposed on a body that tends to cause it to become longer. Tensile stress may be likened to stretching, or lengthening, and is the opposite of compressive stress, or shortening.

Axial tension force is a term in physics that may become a factor in any trenchless construction design or implementation.

Trenchlesspedia explains Axial Tension Force

Construction engineering is dependent on theoretical physics as well as applied mathematics. Workers on a trenchless construction site may not know the finer points, but engineers who design or consult for a project might include calculations of physical force and other factors in their assessments. Axial tension force is one of the variables to be considered.

In general terms, an axis is a central point. Tension tends to result in a pulling motion. Tensile stress is associated with the bending of a pipe. The bending tolerance of pipes depends on such things as maximum tensile stress. Competent engineers are able to analyze the composition of pipes and other trenchless construction materials in order to determine their strengths and weaknesses.
