Buckling

TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE 

The objective of this experiment is to evaluate the effects of loading materials in compression with geometry and boundary conditions that result in buckling failures. Samples of identical properties will be tested at various lengths.  As compressive forces are applied, visual inspection of the straightness of each sample will be examined until the sample buckles.  


MATERIALS NEEDED

A. 3/4" Thumbscrew

B. Buckling Cup 1

C. Buckling Cup 2

D. Sample 1

E. Sample 2

F. Sample 3

G. 5kg Load Cell

H. 5/32 Heck Wrench
