Strenght of Materials Laboratory


Strenght of Materials laboratory introduces students to simple states of stress and strain; Hook's law; torsional stresses; axial deformation; internal forces in beams; bending and shearing diagrams and stresses; beam design; stress transformation; thin-walled pressure vessels; beam deflection, lab session, and experiments.

The students should be able to develop a strong understanding of materials behavior and response (deformation, stresses, and failure) due to various loading conditions (axial, torsion, bending, shear) applied individually or in combinations to structural members. Develop the ability to analyze and design simple structural members under various loading conditions and imposed constraints.

Equipment and Instruments:

  • Universal Testing Machine (UTM)
  • Torsion Testing Machine
  • Fatigue Testing Machine
  • Deflection of Beams
  • Creep Testing Machine
  • Charpy Impact tester
