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 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...
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,...
