Tensile Test Machine Model MT 100

Strength of materials is a subject of mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and structural engineering that studies the strain in deformable solid models. Strength is defined as the capacity to withstand stresses or loads applied on a body without permanently breaking, deforming or damaging it.

Sci-tech Tensile Test Machine Model MT 100, has been designed to study the tensile tests on specimens made of different material.

Item Description

The tests related to this discipline are based on obtaining a relation between the forces applied to a material, called loads, and the strains and displacements generated on that material.

One of the most typical experiments is the tensile test. It is a mechanical test to determine the strength of a material by subjecting it to stress. It is classified as a destructive test (the material suffers failure or significant damage in its structure) in which a specimen is subjected to a tensile load till the material is broken.

With Sci-tech Tensile Test Machine Model MT 100, 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.
