1. Objectives: The objective of the lab was to calculate poisson’s ratio of an aluminum beam using dual strain gages. Poisson's ratio refers to a ratio which predicts the amount of strain experienced in non-parallel directions to an applied load. To calculate Poisson’s ratio the strain gages calculated the longitudinal and lateral strain. The result calculated was found as 0.325 which is a 0.167% error. 2. Theory Poisson’s ratio is a ratio of the transverse strain over the axial strain of an object. When compressed, a material wants to expand in the other two directions perpendicular
