Is the Instron used for the fracture test a different model than that of the tensile test? If so, what is the model number?

What is the brand/model number of the displacement gauge (I can't find it on CTools, my apologies if it is up and I'm just incompetent)

What are the official names of the LabView programs used in this lab?

Thank you.

It's actually not up on CTools, but I can give it to you:

The Instron used for the tensile test was the 8516
For the fracture tests we used the Instron 4206 with a 150kN load cell
The Crack Opening Displacement device we used was an Instron 2670-811

We were using LabVIEW 2010 and the two interface programs were:
Aluminum Tensile Test with Mohrs Circle of Strain
Aluminum Fracture Toughness Test
