Basic Properties

 Elasticity:
Original Shape is regained when load is removed.
 Plasticity:
Original shape is not able to regained when load is removed.
 Brittleness:
Ability of materials by which they can break or develop cracks.
 Ductility:
Degree of plastic deformation that takes place before fracture.
Basic Properties
Basic Properties

 Stiffness:
Ability of materials to resist deformation.
 Malleability:
Ability of materials they can converted into thin sheets.
Basic Properties

 Resilience:
Amount of energy absorbed by material during elastic deformation.

 Toughness:
Total amount of energy absorbed till a material fractures.
Engineering Stress

 The ratio of average uniaxial tensile force to original cross-sectional area.

 Units: N/m^2, Pa
Engineering Strain

 The ratio of change in length of sample in direction of force to the original

length of sample.
 Units: inch/inch, m/m
True Stress

 True stress is the stress determined by the instantaneous load acting on the
instantaneous cross-sectional area.
True Strain

 The rate of instantaneous increase in the instantaneous gauge length.

True Stress and Strain Curve
Tensile Test

 It is used to evaluate the strength of metals and alloys.

 The force on the sample being tested is plotted by the instrument on moving
chart graph paper, while the corresponding strain also recorded on chart

Ultimate Tensile strength:
The maximum strength reached in engineering stress-strain curve.

Percent Elongation:
 The amount of elongation that a tensile specimen undergoes during testing.
Mechanical property data obtained from
Tensile Test
Percent Reduction in area:
 The ductility of metal or alloy can be expressed in terms of percent reduction
in area.
Hardness and Hardness Testing

It is a measure of the resistance of a metal to permanent deformation.

Hardness Testing:
 The hardness of a metal is measured by forcing an indenter into its surface.
 Indenter can be a ball, pyramid or cone.
Hardness Measurements

1) Macro Hardness Testers Loads > 1 kg :

 Brinell
 Rockwell
 Vickers
2) Micro Hardness Testers < 1 kg :
 Knoop diamond
Brinell Hardness Test

 The Brinell hardness test method consists of indenting the test material with
a 10 mm diameter hardened steel.
Rockwell Hardness Test

 The Rockwell hardness test method consists of indenting the test material
with a diamond cone or hardened steel ball indenter.
Vickers Hardness Test

 The Vickers hardness test method consists of indenting the test material with
a diamond indenter, in the form of a right pyramid with a square base and an
angle of 136 degrees.
The Knoop hardness number KHN

 KHN is the ratio of the load applied to the indenter, P (kgf) to the
unrecovered projected area A (mm^2).
Fatigue of Metals

 Failure under fluctuating stress known as fatigue.

Rotating Beam Test

 Specimen is subjected to alternating compression and tension stresses of

equal magnitude while being rotate.
Rotating Beam Test

 Data from this test are plotted in the form of SN-curve.

 For Ferrous Alloys:
Rotating Beam Test

 For Non-Ferrous Alloys:

Factors Affecting Fatigue Strength

 Stress Concentration
 Surface Roughness
 Surface Condition
 Environment

 Deformation under constant stress at elevated temperature.

 Time dependent phenomena.
 If material is exposed to a temperature which is 0.4 of it’s melting point (0.4
Tm), it will fracture in less time.
Creep Mechanism

 Primary Creep
 Secondary Creep
 Tertiary Creep
Creep Test

 The effects of temperature and stress on the creep rate are determined by
the creep test.
