Universal Testing Machine (UTM): It is a Machine by which tensile properties of Reinforcement are tested. Yield Strength, Ultimate tensile strength & Elongation of Reinforcement are obtained from this Machine. A computer is attached with the Universal Testing Machine. The tested data’s of UTM are transferred to this computer. Then the computer shows the graphical representation of Yield Strength, Ultimate Tensile Strength & Elongation of Reinforcement.
Bar Bending Mandrel: It is a machine by which some specific properties of Reinforcement are tested. The tests are Bend Test & Re-bend Test.
