Engineering Materials Lab
The Engineering Materials Lab introduces the concepts, techniques, and devices used to measure engineering properties of a variety of materials. There is an emphasis on measurement of load-deformation characteristics, failure modes and crystal structure. Experiments cover a range of topics: tensile testing, heat treating, impact testing, hardness testing, and corrosion of various materials while including data collection, data analysis, and interpretation and presentation of results.
- Corrosion: Fume hood
- Impact testing: Charpy impact tester
- Heat Treatment: Furnaces, hardness testers, tensile test machine
- Jominy end quench test: Hardness testers
- Metallography: Polishing wheels, sample mounting press
