Column Buckling Tensile Samples
The Euler Column Equation predicts the maximum compressional force applied to a column before it buckles. This value depends on the length of the column, its Area Moment of Inertia, and Young's Modulus for the material. In this lab, machined metal samples that are normally tested in tension are column buckled. The predicted value for the critical buckling force is compared to the actual values.PreviewDownload
Includes everything needed to do tensile, compression, shear, and bending testing as well as column buckling and photoelasticity.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
