Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


The strain gauge trainer shows how to measure strain in different ways and compare displayed strain with theoretical strain for different materials and structures.A digital strain display shows the voltage output from the strain bridge circuits and automatically calculates and shows strainI.It shows strain in the commonly accepted reading of microstrain(µε).


Experiments: The bending system, the torsion system and tension system.
