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, 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,...
The properties measured for steel, brass, and aluminum include Young’s Modulus, Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, Ductility, and Modulus of Toughness.
In this lab, tensile tests are completed on two types of plastic and the stiffness of the materials is measured using several different methods.
In this lab, a Tensile Test is performed on plastic beams and Young's Modulus is measured. Students test beams with varying cross-sectional shapes to investigate the effect, if any, shape has on the outcome of the experiment.
In this lab, Plaster of Paris cast beams are tested to destruction using compression. Quantities measured include Young's Modulus and the Compressive Strength for the material.
