Reduction of Area/Tensile

The calculator below can be used to estimate a final wire tensile.  First enter the initial rod diameter and final wire diameter to determine the % of Reduction of Area.  Once the % of Reduction of Area is calculated, enter the starting rod tensile to calculate an estimated final wire tensile*.

*Wire tensile is an estimate only.  Various factors such as rod chemistry and processing can produce variance.

STEP 1: Reduction of Area


STEP 2: Wire Tensile
