Mark-10 IMF002 Materials Testing Calculations Module for F series test stand.

Characterize and analyze the behavior of materials, components, and assemblies with a suite of materials testing calculations, including:

- Stress and strain
- Tensile strength
- Shear strength
- Young’s modulus (auto-calculate or manually draw)
- Yield point
- Offset yield (user-specified percentage)
- Rupture
- Percent elongation
- Flexural modulus
- Force per unit width
- Wide variety of results based on the above calculations, such as stress at maximum strain, strain at rupture, etc.

IntelliMESUR® formats calculations into a Results table, with corresponding statistics for multiple runs. View a stress-strain curve with annotated calculations. Display up to 10 runs simultaneously for visual comparison.

Common materials testing calculations include:

**Stress**

Stress equals force divided by the cross-sectional area of the sample, commonly measured in psi or MPa.

**Strain**

Strain is the percentage deformation of a sample while under load, measured from its original length between the grips.

**Young’s Modulus**

Young’s modulus, otherwise known as modulus of elasticity, is the slope of the elastic portion of a stress-strain curve.

**Yield Strength**

Yield strength is the amount of stress that can be developed in a material without causing plastic deformation; in other words, the transition point from elastic to plastic behavior.

**Offset Yield Strength**

Offset yield strength approximates a stress just beyond the elastic limit. Draw a parallel line to the Young’s Modulus, offset by a specified amount, commonly 0.2%, and identify the intersection point along the stress-strain curve.

**Ultimate Strength**

Ultimate strength refers to the maximum observed stress during the test.

**Rupture**

Rupture is the amount of stress at which the sample breaks. A break can be defined as a specified percentage of drop from the ultimate strength.

**Note:** Calculations are not available for multi-step tests.
