Course Highlights

This course site provides seven insightful labs that complement 1.050, the Solid Mechanics course also taught by Prof. Louis Bucciarelli.

Course Description

This course introduces students to basic properties of structural materials and behavior of simple structural elements and systems through a series of experiments. Students learn experimental technique, data collection, reduction and analysis, and presentation of results. Students generally take this subject during the same semester as 1.050, Solid Mechanics.
