The effect of loading rate as well as the cocoa content on the tensile strength of dark chocolate has been studied. Tensile strength was measured using the Brazilian test. The main advantage of this test consists in the use of a specimen of simple geometry in comparison with a specimen for tensile tests. Tensile strength increases with loading rate. The cocoa content exhibits the same effect.

In this paper are presented investigation results of tensile strength and elongation of selected alloys from Pt-Rh system. Samples with the content of rhodium in a concentration range of 7-40% (wt.) were studied. Studies were performed in the temperature range 1100-1500°C at a stress of 2-20 MPa. A universal device for measuring hardness was used to measure the Vickers hardness. For investigation of time strength and elongation at high temperatures, the device Mayes MK2 TC/10 was used. It was found that the value of tensile strength increases with increasing rhodium content, and decreases with increasing temperature. Elongation decreases to 7% Rh, then increases with increasing rhodium content to 15% and then slowly decreases again. With increasing temperature there is a slight increase in elongation.

In this paper, effects of preheating and type of electrode (E8010 and E8018) on microstructure and mechanical properties of 5L X70 steel welded joints were investigated. The microstructure of joint zone and fracture surface was analyzed by light optical microscope and scanning electron microscope equipped with energy dispersive spectroscopy. Hardness mapping and tensile test were also performed to find the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties. The results showed a consistency between the hardness variation data and the microstructure of joint zone. Moreover, hardness mapping revealed coarse and fine grain subregions in the heat affected zone which were not detected in the micrographs. The tensile test indicated that the non-preheated sample, welded by cellulosic E8010, had the minimum value in the strength and the ductility of welded steel. The fractography also determined that size and distribution of strengthening phases affected the fracture mode of welded specimens.
