Stress and Strain
This Stress and Strain lesson plan also includes:
- Join to access all included materials
Students are introduced to Stress and Strain. They design and make a concrete cylinder and beam that can withstand the greatest applied load. Students encounter a low, medium and high -tech compression tester.

Physics E3 Project Instructional Plan
Eleventh graders explore Hooke's law through a variety of hands on activities. In this physics lesson, 11th graders perform a computer simulation on Hooke's law. They design a mechanism to test the stress and strain of certain materials.
11th Technology & Engineering
Determination of Tensile Stress-Strain Common Properties in Materials
Students demonstrate the relationship between stress and strain, then graph stress-strain curves for various common materials. Students interpret graphed results and discuss differences in mechanical properties of materials.
11th - 12th Science
Mechanics of Elastic Solids
Make the connection between Hooke's law and elasticity with an activity that introduces the class to the behavior of elastic materials. The resource defines stress and strain to calculate the modules of elasticity of materials and also...
