Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments

The bending stress in a beam teaches stress and strain, bending moment, section properties and the bending equation. Adjusting a load cell that bends the beam and, when connected to the optional Digital Force Display, it measures the bending force (load). Strain gauges and a digital strain bridge measure the strains in the beam. Dummy strain gauges compensate for temperature variation and balance the strain bridges.
