Proportional Limit Stress Proportional Limit . If the force applied to the material is released the material will return to it’s original shape and size. Graph Calculation S tress (S) psi Proportional/ Elastic Limit Strain () in/in S=F/A .The greatest stress a material is capable of withstanding without deviation from a straight -line proportionality between stress and strain.

If the force applied to the material is released the material will not return to it’s original shape and size.Yield Point Stress Yield point .The point at which a sudden elongation takes place. Stress (S) psi Yield Point Calculation Graph Strain () in/in S=F/A . while the load on the sample remains the same or actually drops.

Graph S tress (S ) p si Ultimate Strength Calculation S=F/A Strain () in/in .The point at which the maximum load for a sample is achieved.Ultimate or Tensile Stress Ultimate Strength . Beyond this point. elongation of the sample continues but the force being exerted decreases.

Necking Region S tress (S ) p si Rupture Point Graph Strain () in/in Calculation S=F/A .The maximum amount of stress that can be applied before rupture occurs.Breaking/Rupture Stress Breaking/Rupture Stress . The material fractures in the necking region where the material reduces in diameter as the material elongates.

Proportional / Elastic Limit E = (F1 -F2)Lo / (1 - 2)A Slope Graph Strain () in/in Calculation .Modulus of Elasticity S tress (S ) psi Modulus of Elasticity -A measure of a materials ability to regain its original dimensions after the removal of a load or force. The modulus is the slope of the straight line portion of the stress-strain diagram up to the proportional limit.

This modulus is represented by the area under the stress versus strain curve from zero force to the elastic limit. Elastic Region Calculation S tress (S ) psi Elastic Limit Graph Strain () in/in Ur = 1/2 (yp)( yp) .Modulus of Resilience Modulus of Resilience -A measure of a materials ability to absorb energy up to the elastic limit.

Modulus of Toughness Modulus of Toughness -A measure of a materials ability to plastically deform without fracturing. Work is performed by the material absorbing energy by the blow or deformation. Plastic Region Calculation: S tre s s (S ) p s i Graph Strain () in/in Ut = 1/3(Br) (yp + 2ult) . This measurement is equal to the area under the stress versus strain curve from its origin through the rupture point.

Calculation: % Elongation =  total(100) Ductility:The ability of a material to be deformed plastically without rupture. Calculations: % Reduction in area = Aoriginal . Calculation: total = total/Lo Ductility:The ability of a material to be deformed plastically without rupture.A final / A original (100) .Calculation Page Total Strain/ Deformation -The total amount of elongation of a sample to rupture normalized(divided by) by the initial length.
