Strength of Materials Laboratory
The strength of materials equipment is used in laboratory work of students in the Mechatronic, Computer Aided Mechanical & Manufacturing, and the Medical Mechanical Engineering degree programs. The experiments they carry out allow the students to validate the theoretical relationships introduced in lectures, and usually involve an element of data presentation and analysis.
In general we have one of each piece of equipment and the students, working in groups of three or four, rotate through the experiments over a semester. Oral or written reports are submitted. A number of items of equipment can yield research quality data, and these are used by postgraduate research students, often as part of the characterization stage of their work.
