Materials Testing Lab is a course offered in the fourth semester of B. Tech. programs at the School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Objectives

  • To supplement the theoretical knowledge gained in Mechanics of Materials, this course provides students opportunities to become familiar with standard mechanical testing methods and provides fundamental properties of engineering materials under axial, bending, torsional and impact loads.

Course Outcomes

  • CO1: Understand the aim of the experiment (list appended below) along with the underlying theory.
  • CO2: Setup the experiment and appreciate its limitations.
  • CO3: Carryout the experiment.
  • CO4: Record, interpret and report the findings.

  • Tension test on metals.
  • Hardness test on metals using the Rockwell and Brinell equipment.
  • Impact tests on metals using the Charpy and Izod equipment.
  • Double shear test.
  • Helical spring tests.
  • Static bending test on Wood.
  • Compression tests on Wood.
  • Deflection test to verify the Maxwell reciprocal theorem.

In addition to the conventional tests, students are assigned to open lab projects that involve experimental studies including fabrication and setting up unconventional testing methods to understand the basic concepts of strength of materials.
