Lab2 Tensile TestLab 2 Tensile TestAbstractThe aim behind this experiment was to put Mild steel, copper and aluminium through a tensile test, with Mild steel being tabulated and graphed to show its properties and how they could be used in the real world.Introduction/TheoryTensile testing is one of the most simple and widely used materiel tests available. It is used to characterize the mechanical properties of the material and has direct implications on the design and construction of the end product. This test is usually done prior to any decision being made on the materials use. The theory behind tensile testing is to measure the stress-strain response of the material. By doing so you obtain the yield strength and ultimate tensile strength as some of the results and also provides information on how brittle/ductile the material is, which is vital in the future usage of the material in testing.In this test the aim was to perform tensile tests on standard steel, Aluminium Alloy and copper test pieces using the Instron 5969 Tensile Testing machine to apply the force and an Electronic extensometer to give the readings. After obtaining the readings electronically the values were tabulated into a graph to obtain a tensile testing graph in which the values for Yield Strength (Which is the level of stress needed to stop the material behaving elastically.), Ultimate Tensile Strength (Highest point of stress obtained by the material) and Breaking point (Point at which the str
