Mechanics of Materials Lab
Location: 2259 Gleason
Mechanics of Materials Lab experiments utilize several different types of testing equipment including: Tensile Testers to determine material properties such as the Modulus of Elasticity and the Yield Strength of a material. Torsional Test equipment is used to determine the material properties of common engineering materials when subjected to a shear stress. Data Acquisition systems utilizing Lab View are integrated with each lab experience.
