Description: This simulation has been designed to support the teaching of Tensile Testing at A-Level. It can be used to demonstrate how tensile testing experiments are carried out to find out the effect of carbon content on the mechanical properties of steel. Stress/strain graphs have been created from real experimental data; values may be accurately taken from the graphs and be used to determine Young's Modulus. The graphs can be easily overlaid to help demonstrate the effect of the varying % carbon content.
