In this paper, the permanent mold was produced following thermal stress, fatigue life and damage analyses with the permanent mold technology, tensile test bar mold design, modelling and analysis studies in the casting of Al alloys.
Tensile tests were performed over the temperature range 20-800[degrees]C, and creep tests were conducted at 750[degrees]C.
For the virtual DIC tensile test, the structural FEA model was generated by performing modulus mapping on Moldflow model simulating experiment #10 built with the same processing condition as in the real tensile test samples.
The upper graph shows the relationship between tensile strength and limit strain of base material of the tensile test and limit strain at edge produced by machining in three-point bending test.
The tensile test progressed along the axial (parallel to the aligned fibers), transverse (perpendicular to the aligned fibers), and oblique (45[degrees] bias to the aligned fibers) directions, respectively.
The results of uniaxial tensile tests for carbon steel A-106 Gr.B under different test temperatures (25[degrees]C, 200[degrees]C, 300[degrees]C, 400[degrees]C) were drawn on the same stress-strain diagram for comparison, the resulted diagram for the non-used material can be seen in Fig.
Other researchers, for example, have used uniaxial tensile tests to determine the combination effects of temperature and the strain rate of injection molded unfilled and talc-filled homopolymer polypropylene [2-6].
In the tensile test, the specimens were fixed on the testing machine with two metal brackets.
An elevated temperature tensile test is carried out to assess the strength of material intended for high temperature applications.
Thus, it is established that a simple tensile test and tensile testing simulation with the micromechanical-based shear phenomenological fracture model can be used to predict the fracture load and other tensile and fracture behaviour/properties of cracked wires.
The Gemco Tensile Test system can be used in sterile environments and weighs less than 13kg.
These include the TA-CLT Capsule Loop Tensile Test Fixture and TA-BLS Bilayer Shear Jig.
