In general, the tensile test bars may be produced apart from the procedure itself (salt or permanent mold) to assess the metal quality of molten liquid metal in the production made with casting technology [9].
Tensile test samples of the wrought alloy were machined from a Haynes 282 alloy plate produced by Haynes International.
With help of this script, the DIC tensile test can be simulated in the structural FEA analysis.
Figure 9 shows photographs of the fractures after the tensile test. In the case of No.1/590Ma, fracture did not occur in the spot-welded specimen, but plastic deformation was observed around the spotwelded nugget.
Take the nanocomposites of interlayer angles of 0[degrees] as an example, and the tensile test progressed along the axial direction.
Changes in strength between used and un-used material at a temperature range (from room temperature up to 400[degrees]C) can be found by performing a hot uniaxial tensile test. The aim of these experiments is to record the yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation for each type of materials.
As mentioned above, 16 different groups of samples were prepared for the tensile test. The tensile test was performed five times for each group of samples, which resulted in 80 tensile tests being performed in total.
The shear and tensile test results of the above mentioned fittings are compared with the most commonly used Minifix fitting.
The video, which is posted on YouTube, entitled “Elevated Temperature Tensile Testing (High Temperature Test)” and accessible with the URL http://youtu.be/dnJN1zfRQt8, shows LTI employees performing the necessary tasks to complete an elevated temperature tensile test.
Others are the Young's modulus of 200 x [10.sup.3] N/[mm.sup.2], and the post yield true stress and true plastic strain up to the true ultimate tensile stress and its associated true plastic strain obtained from the engineering stress and strain of the wires, which were obtained from the wires' laboratory tensile test force-displacement results.
Versaperm's "Gemco Tensile Test system" (or "Peel") enables the seal or peel strength of packaging cheeked or measured.
