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.

Equipment includes:

  • 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
