Abstract: This report reviews on the Final Year Project (FYP) B186, Static Tensile Test of Metal Alloys. Aluminum 6061-T6 is used in this research and experimentation. The static tensile test was conducted, and the results would then be compared with prior FYP reports and available data. The author studied past final year reports and familiarised with the ASTM Standards. The objective of this project is to define the mechanical properties for Aluminum 6061-T6. Similar to previous FYP, the fabrication of specimen is Computer Numerical Control (CNC) wire cutting and the experiment is performed in the longitudinal direction. Unlike past final year projects, the author makes adjustments to the specimen dimensions. The design and fabrication of specimen will follow the ASTM E8/E8M standard. Static tensile test is the most common destructive testing that provides information about the material’s mechanical properties such as Modulus of Elasticity, Yield Strength and Ultimate Tensile Strength. After the test is performed, raw data will be collected to plot the stress-strain curve. The results will be analysed and compared against past FYP findings. In addition, this report aims to serve as a future reference on Aluminum 6061-T6. This project will focus on improving the experimental procedure to obtain accurate and consistent results. Lastly, this report aims to serve as future reference on Aluminum 6061-T6, and recommendations for static tensile tests will be discussed.
