MIE 302: Mechanical Engineering Laboratory I
Spring 2013
Lectures: W 11:15-12:05 hrs, Integrated Sciences Building 221 Laboratory: M, Tu, W, F 13:25-17:25 hrs
Web Site: On Moodle
Course Description: Important mechanical properties of materials engineering such as yield strength and fracture toughness experimentally investigated with a view towards materials selection and design. Skills emphasized: experimental technique, statistical analysis of data, and report writing. Prerequisites: MIE 201, 211 and 273. ENGIN 351 (ENGIN 351 may be taken concurrently). Textbook: None. MIE 201 (Callister), MIE 211 (Beer), and MIE 273 textbooks will be used as references. Instructor: Ashwin Ramasubramaniam, ELab 208C; Phone: 5-4866; Email: ashwin@engin.umass.edu Office Hours: W 12:00-13:00 hrs; during any scheduled laboratory session; or by arrangement Course Format:

• Lecture on Wednesday (held as required) will provide the requisite background for the experiment to be performed in the following week. • Lab sessions will be held once a week for 4 hours.
⁃ Each lab session will accommodate up to 20 students in randomly assigned groups of 4 each. ⁃ Each student will maintain a lab notebook with duplicate pages (carbon or carbonless) in which pre-lab calculations and experimental data must be neatly recorded.

⁃ Pre-lab calculations must be independent work and will be turned in to the TA before starting the experiment. ⁃ Before you leave the lab, make sure that the Graduate TA or instructor signs off on your recorded data. ⁃ Copies of your recorded data will be attached to your lab memos and will count towards your memo grade. Hence, keep legible and detailed lab notes.

• For Labs 1, 3, and 5, each group will submit a post-lab memo with pertinent tables, figures, and data analysis. Memo template is provided on Moodle and must be used.
• For Labs 2 and 4, each student will submit a post-lab memo with pertinent tables, figures, and data analysis. These memos must be independent...
