Tensile test for steel procedure
Tensile Test ExperimentOne material property that is widely used and recognized is the strength of a material. The material has known dimensions, like length and cross-sectional area. We then begin to apply weight to the material gripped at one end while the other end is fixed. We keep increasing the weight (often called the load or force) while at the same time measuring the change in length of the sample. In the experiment, a 0.25-inch nominal diameter hot rolled steel or cold drawn sample will be tested to failure.
Load versus strain and load-versus-stroke diagrams will be produced during the test and these diagrams will subsequently be used to determine material properties. We will learn how to properly conduct a tensile test and obtain the relevant material properties from the results. The material is said to have passed its elastic limit when the load is sufficient to initiate plastic or nonrecoverable deformation. Description: The objective of this experiment is to investigate the behavior of two material specimens under a Tensile Test.
