This paper describes a method to evaluate the material properties using a miniature tensile specimen through a simple experimental setup. Conventional test methods for predicting mechanical properties require the removal of large material samples from the in-service component, which is generally impractical. Miniature specimens are designed and prepared such that they represent the original property of the structure/component from which they are taken out. Miniature sample holders are designed… CONTINUE READING
