Torsion of Rods Apparatus

Torsion Of Rods Apparatus

A torsion test is quite instrumental in determining the value of modulus of rigidity of a metallic specimen. The value of modulus of rigidity can be found out thought observations made during the experiment by using the torsion equation.


1. A torsion testing machine.
2. Twist meter for measuring angles of twist
3. A steel rule and Vernier Caliper or micrometer
