Although, a part of damage of mechanical structures by actual seismic events is caused by cumulative damage, their seismic design is generally carried out by using momentary force or stress, because force and stress are calculated easily. Therefore, damage indicating parameters that can evaluate cumulative damage is necessary, and authors have focused on energy as the parameter. The energy can evaluate fatigue failure because the energy is derived from an integral of a product of force and deformation. In our previous paper, vibration and loading experiments were conducted, and the energy necessary for fatigue failure was reported. However the processes to clarify the energy necessary for failure by fatigue experiments take a long time. The processes will be shortened if the energy is clarified by tensile tests.

This paper deals with the energy necessary for tensile failure. In this paper, tensile tests were carried out, and energy necessary for tensile failure was derived. The tensile tests were conducted with various tensile speeds. As a result, more energy is needed when tensile speed is slow. This relationship is same as the relationship confirmed by vibration and loading experiments in our previous papers.
