Course Synopsis

This lab course introduces students to basic properties of material and kinetics and kinematics of particles and rigid bodies through a series of experiment. Students will conduct experiment of tensile, compression, torsion, fatigue, bending moment, shearing stress, transformations of stress and strain in material lab. Experiment on dynamic aspect includes projectile, pendulum, inertia in rotational motion and rolling disc on an incline plane. Students will learn experimental technique, data collection, analysis of results and presentations of results.

Course Outcomes

By the end of semester, students should be able to:

CO1:       Determine the common  properties of material under tension and

                compression.

CO2:       Determine the common  properties of material under torsion and

                cyclic loading.

CO3:       Determine the effect of bending moment and shearing force on a bar

CO4:       Investigate the effect free-flight projectile motion in gravitational field through an experiment and determination of  conservation of energy through pendulum experiment

CO5:      Determine planar kinetics of rigid bodies utilizing force and acceleration principles and planar kinematics of rigid bodies on inclined plane through experiment
