Determination of mechanical properties of material that reveals its elastic and inelastic behaviour when force is applied, thereby indicating its suitability for mechanical applications Properties of a metal or alloy that are relatively insensitive to structure and can be measured without the application of force; for example, density, electrical conductivity, coefficient of thermal expansion, magnetic permeability, and lattice parameter. Does not include chemical reactivity.


Mechanical testing done in AL as below:

Tensile test means, a method of determining the behaviour of materials subjected to uniaxial loading, which tends to stretch the metal. A longitudinal specimen of known length and diameter is gripped at both ends and stretched at a slow, controlled rate until rupture occurs.


UTM machine can be use for the following test

  • Bend test
  • Rebend test
  • Proof load test
  • Compression test
  • Flaring test


UTM machine can give the value of

  • Yield stress
  • Ultimate tensile stress
  • % elongation
  • Reduction percentage area (in %)


UTM machine provide graph of

  • Stress vs strain
  • Load vs displacement
  • Stress vs displacement


Hardness test

Hardness means a measure of the resistance of a material to surface indentation or abrasion; may be thought of as a function of the stress required to produce some specified type of surface deformation.
