# Tensile test on carbon steel

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) carbn at the same time measuring the change dteel length of the sample. Crbon graph is linear and the extension is directly proportional to the applied load.This continues up to tensile test on carbon steel proportional limit and yield point.

The curve no longer follows a straight line and the material moves from elastic deformation to plastic deformation.After the yield point there is brief relief of load as the material work hardens. The graph then continues to rise to the peak load on the graph. Description: Tensille objective of this experiment is to investigate the behavior of two material specimens under a Tensile Test. The materials to be investigated are Copper and Steel.

From performing the Tensile Te. The objective of this experiment is to investigate the behavior of two material specimens under a Tensile Test.
