High-temperature tensile strength

Degree of tensile strength at higher temperatures which can be determined by the hot tensile test.

For cast iron, for example, heat-resisting materials are alloyed with silicon, molybdenum, chromium and vanadium. The target is the sufficient strength at higher temperatures, whereas hot yield strength and/or yield point are decisive.
