In this lab, a Three-Point Bend Test is performed on the ABS plastic beams included with the PASCO Structures System. Then, the Flexural Elastic Modulus for the material is calculated.
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, a compression test is performed on a polyethylene cylinder. Quantities measured include Young's Modulus and the Yield Strength for the material.
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.
The properties measured for steel, brass, and aluminum include Young’s Modulus, Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, Ductility, and Modulus of Toughness.
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.
