The first laboratory report, covering the two-part exercise involving tension testing and stress concentrations is due in lab two weeks after the conclusion of fatigue testing.
This laboratory requires a full, formal laboratory report (unlike the Exercise Reports, which permitted a briefer format.) General guidelines for report formatting are given in Section 2.2 of the MAE 4284 Laboratory Reference Manual. The report for this exercise must follow the formatting convention specified in that document. In particular, please observe the standards described for the presentation of graphs and tables. Additional guidelines specific to Lab Report 1 follow.
Note: it is explicitly forbidden for you to access lab reports from previous years for any purpose whatsoever. They may not be used as a template. They are not a valid resource to answer questions if you feel you don't understand what to do. If you have questions, talk to/email your GSA.
