These findings can be derived from the data
In comparison with other materials, the body can now be divided into two categories: Ductile and brittle. The body is ductile if it can withstand high loads, brittle if the body shows signs of fatigue even under less loads.
The deformation process can be represented in a stress/strain diagram. The points of yield strength, tensile strength and yield strength (0.2% plastic deformation) are clearly visible.
The data obtained is central to the work of structural engineers and engineers. The maximum permissible load of components can be determined by the load limits of the material, taking safety limits into account. This is used in numerous areas, including bridge construction and the transmission of a motor vehicle.
Which devices are used for determination in industry?
The well-known ZwickRoell devices are used in tensile testing. Particular attention must be paid to the standard-compliant execution of the test. Metals are often subjected to tensile testing. The material properties can now be obtained by analysing the data up to the point of material failure. In order to ensure a comparable basis for all measurements, the devices must repeatedly achieve reliably standardized test procedures.
In order for the results to provide the desired findings, the data must be managed. Laboratories all over the world use so-called LIM systems to compare different measurements. This stands for Laboratory Information and Management System. In this way, the results of the tensile test can be transferred directly from the measuring device to the software via automated sequences. The results are stored centrally and analyzed further. The analysis of these raw data now provides information about the desired findings.
