The round tensile specimen given below has a diameter of 0.5 in. A load, F, is applied and the deflection, g , is calculated. Given the following
d = 0.5 in
Lo = 10 in
F = 5 kip
g = 0.022 in
Determine E (elastic modulus) for the material of the specimen. Also, Determine the axial tension, σa , in the specimen and the engineering axial strain, € . Suppose that stresses and strains are in the elastic range of the stress-strain diagram.
