Indigenous Design for Automatic Testing of Tensile Strength Using Graphical User Interface
Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology, Mechatronics Engineering Department, Karachi, Pakistan
Tensile Testing is a fundamental material test to measure the tenacity and tensile strength. Tensile strength means ability to take tensile stress. This Universal Testing Machine is designed using Dual Cylinder Technique in order to comply with the maximun load (tensile force) with the reduction of minimum physical effort and minimized losses.It is to provide material testing opportunity to the students of different institutions, locally and globally, at lowest price; so that they can have a comprehensive understanding of the testing procedures and examining material properties on practical grounds with a minimum expenditure. The testing mechanism is automated along with the inclusion of all necessary parameters and the movement of the members. Specimens of different engineering materials were used to carry out the test and their mechanical strength was tested and compared with the actual values
