This lab investigates two ways in which a member can fail: In tension and in shear. A standard tensile test is performed using the Tensile Samples, and the Tensile Strength is measured. A shear test is then performed (on the same...
In this lab, a three-point bend test is performed on Plaster of Paris cast beams and the Flexural Elastic Modulus for the material is calculated. The maximum load force at fracture is measured, and is used to calculate the Modulus...
In this lab, brass will undergo a tensile test. Quantities measured include Young’s Modulus, Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, Ductility, and Modulus of Resilience.
In this lab, students will collect stress vs. strain data for a test sample in the elastic region. Several runs will be taken for the same sample to calculate the average value of Young's Modulus for the material.
In this lab, tensile tests are completed on two types of plastic and the stiffness of the materials is measured using several different methods.
This lab investigates what effect annealing has on the properties of material. Properties measured for both samples include Young’s Modulus, Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, Ductility, and Modulus of Toughness.
