Paper Title:
Study of Mechanical Properties of the Spider Silk Using a Micro-Tensile System and DIC Methods
  Abstract

The spider silk is considered as a new type of biomaterials with its excellent mechanical properties. The mechanical properties of the spider silk are crucial to their applications. In this study the mechanical properties of spider silk were studied with a micro-tensile system driven by magnet-coil force actuator, which is very effective to measure the properties of low dimensional materials. The Young’s modulus of the spider silk is obtained, the relationship between the mechanical properties of spider silk and time is also acquired.
