With the Tensile Tester Unit, "MTTU", tensile test can be performed. A specimen made of different materials is subjected to an increasing axial tensile stress till failure. This unit allows the user to perform tensile tests with different materials, calculate the maximum tensile force, distinguish between the different regions of a stress-strain chart of a material subjected to tension, and obtain the yield point of the material.
The unit works with a specimen fitted between two bolts and protected by a PMMA protective cover. The bolts fix the material under study, fastening it by their ends.
Once the specimen is installed, a force is applied with the steering wheel till the material breaks. The backward movement of the springs when the specimen is broken is reduced by oil dampers installed between the movable and fixed parts.
During this process, the elongation of the material subjected to a specific tensile force can be measured. The measurement is obtained with the dial gauges and/or the digital caliper included.
The unit is supplied with a panel where the mechanism can be mounted for a more convenient operation.
