College of Engineering owns an in-house built fatigue testing machine, designed and built by Advanced Mechanics and Design (MENG 4350) students. For the testing machine to be used for experimentation in class and research, it needs to be tested using different materials and be calibrated according to relevant standards. After effective calibration of this machine, faculty at the college could use the machine for research and experimental activities. The patterns of current results agreed with published plots but the observed fatigue property values don't exactly match with published values of the tested materials. Further adjustment will be conducted on the machine and more tests will be done to validate and verify results in the future.
