Rubber In Shear Apparatus
Specification of Rubber In Shear Apparatus
This apparatus is designed to study the shear strain in a rubber block due to the shear stress applied on it. When a force acts parallel to the surface of any object, it produces shear strain in it.
The unit consists of a frame that is attached to wall. A rubber block is affixed to its surface. The rubber block has a metallic strip fastened to its surface. To produce shear strain in the rubber block, load is applied to metallic strip via a hanger. The unit has dial gauge attached to the upper end of the rubber block to measure the amount of deformation.
