Strength of Materials Lab
Bending Moment Testing Equipment
In their strength of materials lab, students use this bending moment testing equipment to directly measure beam bending moments.
Strain Gage Testing
Students conduct experiments with strain gages in their strength of materials course to assess strain in test samples.
Instron Tensile Tester
Students break specimens in this Instron tensile testing machine to determine tensile strength and other material properties.
This torsion test apparatus was constructed in our machine shop. It is used by Integrated Engineering students in their strength of materials lab to measure the shear modulus of various materials.
Beam Deflection Experiment
Students use this apparatus to study beam deflection for bolted and unbolted beams.
