Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Error/Uncertainty What are two ways to calculate propagation of uncertainty in calculations? 1.Max/Min Calculations 2.Relative Uncertainty Equations How do you calculate the uncertainty in your calculation of Young’s Modulus using the Euler Buckling equation,

2
Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Error/Uncertainty Uncertainty is an interval around a value such that any repetition will produce a new result that lies within that interval. Error refers to the disagreement between a measurement and the true or accepted value

3
Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Mechanical Material Properties Testing Compression Test Failure by buckling or crushing (or shattering glass) Wood: Crush if L/d 10 Modes of Buckling

4
Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Materials Lab and Uncertainty Objectives 1.Review materials lab objectives and analysis 2.Understand uncertainty in materials lab

5
Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Experiment 1: Tensile Test Objective 1: Show that the tensile force required to break a rod is of the form P = kR 2 (where P is the force required to break the material in tension, k is a constant determined by the material, R is the radius of the cylindrical specimen being tested). Objective 2: Determine the tensile strength (maximum stress in tension, ultimate tensile strength) of spaghetti directly

6
Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Experiment 2: Bending Test Objective 1: Determine Young’s Modulus for spaghetti using the bending equation Objective 2: Determine the tensile strength of spaghetti indirectly

7
Engineering Practicum Baltimore Polytechnic Institute M. Scott Experiment 3: Buckling Test Objective 1: To prove that the Euler buckling load P for a cylindrical specimen of material can be accurately expressed by the following equation: (where P is the “critical” buckling load, A is the cross-sectional area of the specimen tested, E is Young’s Modulus for the material, k is a constant that depends on how the rod is held, L is the length of the specimen, and R is the radius of the cylindrical specimen). Objective 2: To determine Young’s Modulus for spaghetti using the Euler Buckling equation
