Engineering Stress-Strain (the tensile test)

I am wondering why the output from our tensile tester (load, displacement, etc.) has to be shifted in order to attain a stress-strain curve that passes through zero-zero. Is this because of some relaxation of the grips or is there some material property that explains this?

Thanks,
sljethro

Sounds like your machine is out of calibration.
