STRENGTH OF MATERIALS LAB

The objective of Strength of Material lab is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of strength and mechanics of materials to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. Students will be conducting experiments using UTM to calculate the tensile strength of steel samples and experiments to measure hardness of non-heat treated and heat treated steels by using Rockwell, Brinels hardness testing equipments. Students will also test steel samples in single shear, double shear and impact loading followed by experiments on torsion testing machine to calculate torsional strength. The laboratory also demonstrates the important concepts from Strength of Materials theory course.
