Purpose The purpose of this lab was to determine different materials’ tensile strengths. The materials tested were low carbon steel, brass, high strength aluminum, and aluminum. By finding the tensile strength of a material it can be determined whether that material is capable of withstanding a given load without failure. Introduction The tension test, using the MTS Insight Electromechanical Testing Machine, tests to measure how much a material can withstand a load without failure. Once failure is reached, the applied load is taken off and the data is recorded. The data is then converted in to a stress-strain diagram and used to compare data between different materials.

    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.
