Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


Diaphragm shows the change of shape and strains in the surface of a circular diaphragm when it is under stress from an increased pressure on one side. It also teaches the use of strain gauges, Radial and circumferential strains, the cross-section of a diaphragm under pressure (deflected shape) and how to calculate the theoretical strains and deflected in a diaphragm.


Experiments: Deflected shape, Surface strains.
