Poisson's ratio on UTM

Please note the experiment availability as in table below. This experiment is AVAILABLE ON SUN/MON.


  1. Go through theory.
  2. Click 'Start' button.
  3. Click 'Calibrate' button.
  4. Wait for few seconds till the 'set speed' is activated and can be selected.
  5. Select 'set speed' from the drop down menu as 0.1 or 0.15.
  6. Click 'start loading' and observe the Strains Vs Time graph and the graphic view.
  7. Observe the 'Station status' and view that the Actual load increases just above 3kN and then it decreases back to static state relieving the tension on the specimen.
  8. If the actual load is found is continuing in the negative direction, (keeping on increasing in negative value), click 'Stop loading'.
  9. Select 2 points on the Strain Vs Time graph and click 'Calculate_Poisson's' button.
  10. The software will ratio corresponding points on the Lateral and Longitudinal strain lines, to give Poisson's ratio for the material.
