Universal Testing Machine Motion Control System

Sagar S Patel | Gayathri K M

Abstract: Universal testing machine is a kind of basic experimental equipment which can test many mechanical properties of materials such as its stress and strain it is named after the fact that it can perform many standard tensile and compression test on materials, components and structures [1]. All the traditional machine use hydraulic systems which do not have real time control over the loading process for example if the required load to be applied on the specimen is consider 100kg, then the user only should stop the machine manually and there is no guaranty that the machine stops at 100kg so if the applied load exceeds maximum rated capacity of specimen then the specimen will be damaged. In order to over come this disadvantage of the traditional systems this project aims to achieve real time control over loading process and monitoring the applied load using LabVIEW so that the applied load on the specimen does not exceed the maximum rated capacity. Hence there is a need to improve the control of motion of universal testing machine.
