In this project I designed a beam and two supports for it so that I could demonstrate how
it will behave when loaded in two places on the beam at once. This will cause it to have
curvature, which can be determined from the load and the moment on
This experiment was designed to determine the maximum strength on a concrete cylinder
under compressive axial forces and tensile forces. To test this we used a freshly mixed
cylinder and applied an axial load as it ages to compare the streng
This lab is designed to gather data on the bending of wood and reinforced concrete.
Reinforced concrete specimen
First, measure the cross-sectional area of the specimen and take not of any

This lab is designed to analyze the mechanical properties of wood due to axial loading,
compressing the wood, in both parallel and perpendicular directions to the grain.
Comparing loads on a dry piece and a wet piece of wood will also test t
The objective of this experiment is to obtain a stress-strain curve of two similar objects in
shape through a tensile strength test. One is made of steel; the other is made of aluminum
and each materials mechanical properties will be compare
In this lab the shear modulus for a piece of rubber hose will be calculated through stress,
strain, energy and polar moment of inertia.
