Set of three each of 1/8” diameter aluminum, brass, and mild steel samples. These samples are designed for use with the Material Testing System’s Shear Accessory.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD!
Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
Perform the following experiments and more with the Shear Samples.

In this lab, a three-point bend test is performed on a round rod. The Flexural Elastic Modulus for the material is calculated. Materials tested include aluminum, brass, and steel.
In this lab, a single-shear test is performed on 1/8 inch diameter metal rods. The maximum force needed to shear the rod is measured and used to calculate the Shear Strength of the material. Tested materials include steel, brass,...
In this lab, a three-Point Bend test is performed on a round rod. The distance between the anvils is varied, and the resulting effect on the stiffness of the beam is measured. A graph of the resulting data yields the Flexural...
