A metal alloy has been tested in a tensile test with the following results for the flow curve
parameters: strength coefficient = 620.5 MPa and strain

hardening exponent = 0.26.
The same metal
is now tested in a compression test in which the starting height of the specimen = 62.5 mm and its
diameter = 25 mm. Assuming that the cross section increases uniformly, determine the load
required to compress the specimen to a height of (a
) 50 mm and (b) 37.5 mm.

A bend test is used for a certain hard material. If the transverse rupture strengt
h of the material
is
known to be 1000 MPa, what is the anticipated load at which the specimen is likely to fail, given
that
its dimensions are: width of cross section = 15 mm, thickness of cross section = 10 mm, and
length =
60 mm?

In a Brinell hardness test, a 1500 kg load is pressed into a specimen using a 10 mm diameter
hardened steel ball. The resulting indentation has a diameter = 3.2 mm. Determine the Brinell
hardness number for the metal.
