Scope : No theoretical stress formulation is acceptable howsoever mathematically may be it correct, unless validated by the experiments. The knowledge of experimentation, instrumentation, interpretation of experimental data to arrive at precise conclusion needs practice and skills. The experimental set up and the loading pattern are chosen so as to match with the assumptions in the derivations and thus reducing the errors in experimental and theoretical results. The various types of loads like axial, transverse for shear and flexure, torque for torsional shear are applied on the IS standard test specimens to study the requisite types of stresses and deformations and correlate it to the theory and understand the basic difference among them.
The best way to learn Solid Mechanics is through the experimental observations and translating it to the analytical model.
