MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF STEEL AND CONCRETE REPORT FROM LABORATORY DEMONSTRATIONS ON 20TH MARCH 2015 AS PART OF THE UNIT OF STUDY CIVL2201 STRUCTURAL MECHANICS NAME: PHILIP ZHAO YONG TAN STUDENT NUMBER : 440519207 20/3/2015 ABSTRACT This report describes a tension test on a steel coupon, and a compression test on a concrete cylinder. The main aim of the tests was to obtain the stress strain curves for the two materials. Both test methods are described. It was found that the steel exhibited linear elastic behaviour, and had a yield stress of 352 MPa, an ultimate strength of 478 MPa, an elastic modulus of 224GPa, and a strain at failure, ef of 30.1%.Furthermore, it was found that concrete exhibited non-linear inelastic behaviour,…show more content…
