Experiment # 1 Title: Determining Failure Load And Computing Strength Name: Matthew Lingam Division #: Date: 2/5/10 TA’s Name: Chaitanya Paletis Synopsis : During this experiment a small sample of Douglas fir wood was used, and it was placed onto a machine which then applied a force to the top of the sample of wood pushing it down. This was done to determine the failure load of the wood and other significant details about the sample of wood. Altogether there were 117 students who participated in this experiment. After all of the data was recorded a summary of the results showed that the average failure load of the wood samples was 22714 lbs. And the average strength of the wood samples was 10095.159.

Objectives : The objective of this lab was to understand how a certain object’s variability influences the strength and the construction of other materials. This is important to discover to determine what materials would be best suited for different kinds of constructions. This lab also helped the students understand the techniques for handling a large amount of data and how to present this data in a clear and understandable way.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
