Low-Cost Instrumentation for Mechanical Testing of Structural Elements of Soft Systems

Turza, Ashley.
2017

Abstract: This thesis describes the design of a low-cost system of tests to characterize mechanical properties in soft structures. More specifically, we focus on testing mesoscale structural components (which we call structural volume elements) from which a larger structure might be constructed. The mechanical properties of a structural volume element are determined both by its material properties... read more
