Procedure All three tests were run as described in the lab manual, however for the calibration the Y axes calibration factor was recorded as it was posted on the plotter rather than calculation it by hand. The X axes calibration factor was found as described in the lab manual. Questions 1. Re-label both axes of all plots for the steel and aluminum specimens in appropriate physical units of stress and strain. Show your calculations determining the scales. Sketch specimens and give dimensions. The plots for the steel and aluminum specimens are given in the appendix. The calibration factor for the X axes was calculated as shown from the graph shown where a large box is one inch and the small boxes are equal to .1 in.:

The method in which this was calculated for the graph of the steel specimen is shown for the Y axes; = σ FA = × F Y 2000 lbsin = = × =. )×(. =. A

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
