What is tenuity?

Tenuity (τενευθερία) is a measure of how much a material can withstand a stress or tensile force without breaking. Material with high tenuity can withstand a great deal of stress before failing, while materials with low tenuity can break very easily.

Many materials, including wire, cables, and fiberglass, have low tenuity. This means that they can break easily under stress, presenting a safety hazard.

In order to improve the tenuity of materials, researchers have been developing new methods of manufacturing them.
