Abstract: Material testing is done to measure the characteristics and behaviors of structural materials. As structural components fail due to fracture or excessive deformation, test results help in anticipating how much stress the structural materials can be expected to withstand.  Results obtained through testing are used to specify the suitability of the material for various structural applications. Tensile Test, which is carried out in a Universal Testing Machine (UTM), is one such test, where the test specimen is subjected to controlled tension until failure. In this paper we study the Parameters obtained after Tensile Test include Yield stress, Ultimate tensile stress, and Nominal breaking stress, Actual breaking stress, percentage of elongation and Percentage of reduction area.

Keywords: Material testing, tensile stress, Carbon steel, UTM
