Stress and Strain in a CantileverBeamFernando CantuLab Partner: Jesse ChapaMECE 3360Experiment performed: 02/23/22Report due: 03/03/22Submission: 03/03/22AbstractMain objective was to verify Hooke’s law and the Euler beam bending theory byobtaining the Young Modulus of elasticity. With such info deflection, stress and strain ofcantilever, voltage, and graphs will be evaluated. This lab required info from the proximity probecalibration lab.
ObjectiveTo verify Hooke’s Law and Euler-Bernoulli's theory with an evaluation of the beam’sresult. Acquired the strain, voltage, deflection, and stress to determine if Law and theory arevalid.IntroductionWhen an elastic material is stressed, it experiences strain and within its limits, it obeysHooke’s law. Furthermore, Young’s Modulus, E. is considered the proportionality factor. This labrequired the determination of deflection, stress and strain of the aluminum cantilever. The Euler-Bernoulli beam theory is represented with a straight beam made of elastic material loaded at theend with a deflected shape.Procedure1.Initially, it is required to plug the strain gage readout and turn the power switch to AC.2.Measure the dimension of the beam and the strain gage dimension and location.3.Utilize the mass balance to weigh the mass of the weight hanger and 6 other weights.
