Brass Compression Data Analysis Alex Fidalgo Stevens Institute of Technology 10/6/10 Design Laboratory III E-231 Section J Group 2 I pledge my honor that I have abided by the Stevens Honor System._______________________ Objective: The purpose of this experiment was to analyze various lengths of brass tubing and how their compressive strength varied according to length. Procedure: 1. Each group compressed the cut piece of brass tubing until failure. 2. Each group recorded the load at failure 3. Each group repeated this process for their 4”, 5”, 6”, and 7” pieces of brass tubing. Results: The average compressive load at failure for the 4” piece of brass tubing was 99.5 lbs, the

Unformatted text preview: 5” piece was 145.2 lbs, the 6” piece was 190.7 lbs, and the 7” piece was 228.1 lbs. This information can be found on the following table: Analysis: This experiment demonstrated that different lengths of brass tubing had different compressive load capacities. As the length of the brass tubing increased, the compressive load at failure decreased. The trendline for the data was found to be y = -43.13x + 403.09. Remarks: This experiment was crucial to knowing how brass tubing reacts when loaded according to length....
