Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


Torsion testing machine shows the torque (stress) and twist (strain) in a specimen to find the yield strength and modulus of rigidity or ‘shear modulus’ for the metal.The machine can also test specimens to destruction to find their failure point.


Experiments: Shear modulus.
