Standard Mechanical Engineering Laboratory Report Manual (CSULA). Experimental Mechanics and Properties of Materials , by Muhlenbruch, Part One, Part Two, and Experiments 1, 2, and 14. Equipment: Tinius-Olsen, 200 kip, pit mounted, Universal Testing Machine, or Tinius-Olsen, 400 kip, Universal Testing Machine, micrometer (0 - 1 inch), ball micrometer (0.2 - 1.2 inch), steel scale (12 inch), dividers, extensometer, 2-in. gage point punch. Test Specimen: Carbon steel bar (ASTM A 36) machined to standard tensile test specimen dimensions for 2-inch gage length and 1/2-inch diameter. Test Procedure: Students must have a clear understanding of how to operate the Tinius-Olsen UTM before starting an experiment with this machine. Measure the minimum diameter of the specimen to the nearest 0.001 inch and record it....
