The tensile properties of these metals will be contrasted and the properties will be compared with those in reference books. II. INTRODUCTION The tensile test is the primary test used in determining the mechanical properties of materials.  From this test, it is possible to determine the yield strength, tensile strength, modulus of elasticity,  and ductility of a given material. This type of data is essential for mechanical and structural  designs and is usually compiled in materials handbooks for commercially available materials.  III. EXPERIMENTAL Materials and Apparatus Instron Tensile Test System (Series 3369, Figure 1 ) Four tension test specimens – aluminum (2024-T4), copper (C11000), brass (C36000), and steel (1010 cold-rolled) (see Figure 2 ) Rockwell Hardness Tester Vernier caliper
