### Tensile Strength

Tensile Strength Report | Materials in Practice CP4088/CP8011 | By Clinton Chang | Synopsis This experiment is to find out the tensile strength of different plastic materials. The four plastic materials used are General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS), High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Polypropylene (PP). By using three samples from each plastic material type, we are able to obtain the mean tensile strength, mean tensile modulus and mean yield strength of each...

### Tensile Strength and Solution

cross-sectional area of 0.25 in2 is stretched between two fixed points. The tensile load at 70°F is 1200 lb. What will be the stress at 0°F? At what temperature will the stress be zero? Assume α = 6.5 × 10-6 in/(in·°F) and E = 29 × 106 psi.   Solution 261 For the stress at 0°C:  answer   For the temperature that causes zero stress:    answer problem 262 A steel rod is stretched between two rigid walls and carries a tensile load of 5000 N at 20°C. If the allowable stress is not to exceed 130...

### Tensile Testing

Tensile Testing Of Metallic Materials 概要： Tensile testing of metallic materials is specified according to European EN 10002 standard. In this article the terms, definitions and designation for tensile test made at ambient temperature is described. The test involves straining a test piece in tension, generally to fracture, for the purpose of determining mechanical properties. Tensile testing of metallic materials is specified according to European EN 10002 standard. This standards consists of five...

### Tensile Test Report

﻿Tensile Test Abstract The objective of this experiment is to test three specimens of different materials in a Tensile test machine and to calculate basic material characteristics such as tensile stress and Young’s Modulus. This report will explain in detail theory and procedures involved in such test and give all results obtained by group C2 on October 2013. Introduction Young’s Modulus, also known as Elastic Modulus is a material characteristic that represents stiffness and is defined as the...

### tensile test of aluminum and mild steel

ABSTARCT: Tensile tests are fundamental for understanding properties of different materials, and how they will behave under load. These properties can be used for design and analysis of engineering structures, and for developing new Materials that better suit a specified use. This lab tested two materials mild steel and cast iron. The data from each test was used to determine valuable material properties such as ultimate tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, and yield strength. Other calculated...

### Properties Obtained from Tensile Stress Test

Yield Strength As we apply a low level of stress to a material; the material initially exhibits elastic deformation. In this region the strain that develops is completely and quickly recovered when the applied stress is removed. However, as we continue to increase the applied stress the material begins to exhibit both elastic and plastic deformation. The critical stress value needed to initiate plastic deformation is defined as the elastic limit of the material. In metallic materials, this is usually...

### Tensile Test Lab Report

element tensile test is conducted for element size of 5mm at strain rates mentioned in Fig. 7 7. The true stress versus plastic strain results of the simulation in comparison to the load curve is shown in Fig. 7 9. As the damage is coupled to the stress tensor by Eq. 4 1, there is a continuous reduction of stress. The plastic strain at failure for different strain rates is shown in Fig. 7 11 which is in accordance to the scaling factor given for different strain rates. One element tensile test is...
