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 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, 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 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.
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.
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...
