Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


Many parts stressed below their yield strength repeatedly for long periods will also break, due to fatigue. But some designs include parts that must flex, bend or twist repeatedly, to work correctly (springs). Also, many parts of a product flex repeatedly while they work (aircraft wings).


Experiments: Basic tests (aluminium  specimens only), high cycle fatigue tests (all specimens).
