View Resource MAST Semiconductors Module Experiment 5 Alternating to Direct

This laboratory illustrates how diodes can be used to rectify alternating current. It uses galvanometer to determine the direction of current flow when an AC or DC current is applied to the circuit containing a diode in series with a resistor and a galvanometer.

View Resource ECI Composites Material Science: 2-2 Plaster of Paris Matrix Composite

Introduction to the reinforcement affects composite behavior and the three point bend test. Students will be creating plaster beams with and without reinforcement. The reinforcing materials can vary, however they must be verified by the professor. Plaster beams are created using plastic molds with reinforcements laid within. The beams are then tested using a home made mechanical testing apparatus,...
