Question: 3 polymers may only quote either yield or tensile strength...

Question details

3. Polymers may only quote either yield or tensile strength. Provide any relevant comments on your results. Some points which you may wish to consider:

• Are the results what you expected (do they follow the trends of data in your references?).

• For alloyed metals (e.g. brass, steel if tested) can you suggest the alloy composition and condition by comparison with data in references?

........................................................................................................................................... (1) ]

• Compare 4 of the polymers tested with respect to their strength and Ductility. • Strongest Polymer to Weakest Polymer (1)

• ................................... ......................................... ................................ .................................

• Most Ductile Polymer to Least Ductile Polymer (1)

• ................................... ......................................... ................................ .................................

From the stress-strain characteristics, as indicated by your Excel Plots, rank the relative tensile toughness and Stiffness (i.e. the Youngs Modulus E) levels of the materials tested, giving your reasons 1 Most Tough Reason Reason 2 Next Toughest 2 Next Stiffest Reason Reason 3 Next Toughest 3 Next Stiffest Reason Reason 4 Least Stiff ..
