MAE 3113 MEASUREMENTS AND INSTRUMENTATIONS SPRING 2006 Lab 7 (Report Due in two-weeks) STRAIN GAGE Static and Dynamic Week Two FIRST: Finish any unfinished tasks from last week before you start. Objective: During this period, you will learn how measure both static and dynamic deflections in a simple cantilever beam. You will also be introduced to two different types of sensors that can be used to measure distance or deflections. 1. Cantilevered Beam Experiment a. An aluminum beam, with a ½ bridge installed, is clamped into a steel stand. i. Measure the strain level vs. deflection at the tip of the beam Make sure you take measurements in both the positive and negative directions. (Don’t over stress the bar, keep your deflection under 1.25”) ii. Measure the strain level vs. load applied at the tip of the beam. iii. (Theory) Now, using the measurements from above see if you can determine the Young's modulus for this bar. ε
