Schematic 1: Strain Gage Setup
Analysis of Results:
\u2022Data Reduction: The primary equations used in this laboratory experiment
are all derived from stress, strain and electrical equations for simple circuits.
For example, to find the theoretical bending stress we use the equation
I
Mc
=
\u03c3
where M is the moment

(
Px
M=
, c is the height of the material,
and I is the calculated inertia. For this particular experiment we use a
rectangular beam, so

1bh
I=
where b is the length of the base and h is the
thickness (2c). Young\u2019s Modulus is calculated as usual,
\u03b5
\u03c3
=
E
(if you didn\u2019t
know), where\u03c3 is the calculated stress and\u03b5 is the calculated strainLL
\u2206\u2026 in
case you were wondering. Poisson\u2019s Ratio will be implemented as
L
T
\u03b5
\u03b5
\u03c5\u2212
=
where\u03b5T is the transverse strain and\u03b5L is the longitudinal strain. Also, to
calculate the theoretical strain at the location of the longitudinal strain gage
we use the tip-deflection data and calculate
3
Lcd
\u03b4
\u03b53
=
at any distance d from
the tip, where L is the length of the beam, c is half the thickness t, and\u03b4 is the
value of the measured tip-deflection from our data.
