Mechanical testing or engineering tests are performed to determine various mechanical properties of materials such as strength, hardness, ductility, toughness, brittleness, etc. There are several types of test to determine various mechanical and physical properties of material. The precision results of these tests is utilised to determine suitability of materials for the field application.
The realistic meaning of mechanical testing in testing laboratories is to perform various strength test such as tensile test, compression test, shear test, flexural test, bend (ductility) test, impact (toughness) test, weld fracture test, Rockwell hardness test, Vickers Hardness test, Brinell hardness test, macro test etc.
