Unformatted text preview: Our specimen broke in the safety length line. Finally we record its final dimensions. Discussion: When a material is designed, its design parameters must be known. Mechanical properties are one of the most important properties for a material. Mechanical properties can de determined by using the tension test. We can obtain all the necessary values by drawing the stress-strain diagram like Young’s Modulus, yield point, yield stress, yield strain, elastic region, plastic region and these properties will guide us through the areas that we can use that material. In our experiment we had a tension test and drew a stress-strain diagram. However, we had some errors in our experiment. These errors may stem from the impurities, notches, cracks that the material has. In addition, there might be some human or mechanical mistakes. These errors result in the computations on the stress-strain diagram. References : Lab Manual...
