Slide 1

In this talk we will review the geometry, preparation and measurement of the circular test samples used for the aluminum, cast iron and PMMA materials. Then we review the steps taken in the test and in data acquisition. In the lab reports section we will ask you to determine shear modulus, and either yield stress in shear (for ductile materials) or fracture stress (for brittle materials). Thus in this talk we also review the data reduction procedures and basic equations. Note that the analyses discussed here apply only to circular cross sections. Data and analysis sheets are provided in the lab manual to help you with your data reduction.
