Title

Bending Resistance Tester

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

Bending is a type of loading that occurs in many physical applications and is a topic that is studied extensively in many engineering courses. The existing setup for testing materials under bending loads at the University of the Pacific could be improved in order to better reinforce this important concept. This project involves improving the capabilities of the Materials Testing System (MTS) in performing bending tests by designing, fabricating, and implementing a fixture that allows for more types of materials to be tested under different types of bending loads.
