Chase Machemehl November 14, 2007 Mrs. JoAnn Scales Section 10, Thursday 1-4pm Materials Science and Engineering Vanderbilt University Nashville, TN 37235 Beam Flexure and Bending Dear Mrs. Scales, The following letter details the results of the lab experiment performed on Thursday November 8, 2007. The primary objective of this lab was to measure beam flexure as a function of stress using strain gages and transducers. This relationship was analyzed for three different materials, including steel, aluminum, and fiberglass reinforced with epoxy. Beams are placed individually into a four point test jig. The load frame is prepared for compression loading, and the deflection gage is positioned to measure loaded deflection. Dimensions of the length of the beam, weight of the beam, and the distance between the applied load and the beam ends are recorded. The following figures represent the dimensions of the beams tested during this lab experiment.
