Compression Testing Cast Beams
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.PreviewDownload
This metric/Imperial digital caliper (15 cm or 6 inch) measures to the nearest 0.01 mm (0.0005 inch). It features automatic power down and it includes a sturdy, protective plastic case.
Structures beam fixture uses structures system I-beams for investigations in tension, compression and bending.
This is the assembly-only version; measures force and displacement for various materials as the materials are stretched, compressed, sheared, or bent.
Use plaster to mold beams from this rebar and cast set and allow students to build and test real pre-stressed beams.
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.
