Strengths Project help

  1. Mar 6, 2013 #1
    I'm a sophomore civil engineering student in strength of materials class and have to come up with a project. The project was take something and due a compression, tensile, deflection, etc. test. My first thought was to do something with self-consolidating concrete, which I heard about last summer at my internship, but don't know much about. I asked my professor and said since I haven't taken other civil classes it would be hard because I haven't learned enough about concrete yet, so I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    If you are a sophomore CE student, you should know the difference between 'due' and 'do'.

    Instead of using concrete, how about something made of metal? Metals have fairly predictable behavior is such tests.
