If the tidal forces are too large, the body may yield and flow plastically before the tidal forces can be balanced, or fracture, producing either a filament or a vertical line of broken pieces. Galaxies in the Universe.
Astronomy: A Physical Perspective by Marc L. Kutner
Paperbackpages. For massive bodies with a surface, the tensile force is largest near the surface, and this maximum value is only dependent on the object and the average density of the massive body as long as the object is small relative to the massive body.
The four objects follow the lines of the gravitoelectric field, directed towards the celestial body’s centre. For non-uniform objects the tensile force is smaller if perspectice mass is near the center, and up to twice as large if more mass is at the ends.

Bret Comnes rated it really liked it Jan 09, Home eBooks Nonfiction Astrinomy Stephen Hawking describes the flight of a fictional astronaut who, passing within a black hole’s event horizon, is “stretched like spaghetti” by the gravitational gradient difference in strength from head to toe.
A rigid body will resist distortion, and internal elastic forces develop as the body distorts to balance the tidal forces, so attaining mechanical equilibrium.

In the most extreme cases, near black holes, the stretching is so powerful that no object can withstand it, no matter how strong its components.
Astronomy: A Physical Perspective
Examples of weak and strong tidal forces In the gravity field due to a point mass or spherical mass, for a uniform rod oriented in the direction of gravity, the tensile force at the center is found by integration of the tidal force from the center to one of the ends.
