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.
The properties measured for steel, brass, and aluminum include Young’s Modulus, Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, Ductility, and Modulus of Toughness.
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 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, 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 compression test is performed on a polyethylene cylinder. Quantities measured include Young's Modulus and the Yield Strength for the material.
