  Lab : Strength of Material (III- Semester)
 

The objective of the strength of materials lab. is to demonstrate the basic principles in the area of strength and mechanics of materials and structural analysis to the undergraduate students through a series of experiments. Tests such as the tension tests of a steel coupon, torsion of model circular sections and bending of a steel bar are conducted in the lab. Model truss and frames are also employed to illustrate the theory in structural analysis and the basic plastic theory of bending. The students are also introduced to the data acquisition system (Strain gauges and dial gauges etc) used in experimental study.
