In their strength of materials lab, students use this bending moment testing equipment to directly measure beam bending moments.
Students conduct experiments with strain gages in their strength of materials course to assess strain in test samples.
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.
Students use this apparatus to study beam deflection for bolted and unbolted beams.
