Information on Equipment 4 B. Procedure 4 Results 4 Conclusion 6 Appendix A : ASTM Standards 7 2 Introduction In this lab two different types of steel were tested in order to determine quality as well as how the materials behaved under tension. Two different types of steel were used to show how different methods of preparation of steel changes how they act under tension. Background/Theory When steel undergoes tensile forces, those tensile forces can be predictable and therefore identifiable to the specific type of steel. The test was performed by screwing the two ends of the specimen into the machine, then pulling the ends apart. The stress and strain of the specimen are then calculated and graphed to determine the properties of the specimen; properties such as yield strength, ultimate strength...
