Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


Universal Testing Machine shows the force applied (stress) and displacement (strain) in a specimen or structure. The measurements used to find the strength, stiffeness and modulus of elasticity ‘Young’s modulus’ for the material or structure. The machine can also test tensile specimens to destruction to find their failure point.


Experiments:Tensile test, Brinell hardness test, Deflection of a coil spring, Deflection of a leaf spring, Deflection of beams.
