The results are used in the design and development of various kinds of engineering components. The tests give us an understanding about the ultimate strain and stress capabilities of the material, also providing us with information about the factor of safety that needs to be built-in the products using these materials.
Mechanical testing is carried out to characterize the material properties of steel, polymers and
- 1) Tension test
- 2) Compression test
- 3) Flexural test
- 4) Dynamic test
