    Abstract

    A tension-compression alignment fixture has been designed for an MTS universal test machine. Bending stresses in the specimen are eliminated by rotation and displacement adjustments to the fixture. Lost motion is reduced by preloading in compression all mating parts of the fixture. Results of the Bauschinger effect on several metals are described.
