On this 4th December 2017, the track container of Civil Engineering lab materials arrived at INES-Ruhengeri. It was exciting to see this burden entering the main gate of INES-Ruhengeri.
Among the new materials arrived, tensile testing machine is one of the important and wanted machines in the container. A universal testing machine (UTM), also known as a universal tester, materials testing machine or materials test frame, is used to test the tensile strength and compressive strength of materials. An earlier name for a tensile testing machine is a tensometer.
