James Dean MEEN 305 – 505 Wednesday, September 8 Learning Outcome 2 1. The three transition types will be fractures, deformation, and yielding. Fractures - During this transition the object being subjected to the force fractured. 1) Aluminum Tensile Test 5) Thick Concrete Compression 6) Silly Putty Stretch 7) Three Point Bend Test Deformation - These objects bent under the force applied but did not fracture. These objects did not return to their original form when the forces were taken away. 4) Bent Paper Clip 8) Trash Bag Yielding - These objects also bent under the pressure, but after the force that was being
