Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


The thin cylinder shows the strains in the surface of a thin-walled cylinder when it is under stress from an internal pressure. The thin cylinder also teaches a biaxial stress system, the use of strain gauges, Young’s modulus, Poisson’ Ratio and Construction and use of a Mohr’s circle.


Experiments: Open ends and Closed ends.
