Title1R20.u1 - Matter Model

Demonstrate stress, strain, and shearing forces.

​By twisting and compressing the model, stress, strain, and shearing forces are easily visible.
Assembly Instructions

Check springs to ensure all are attached to their corresponding lattice sites (balls). For the larger and softer matter model, take care by grabbing the white plastic plate to move the model instead of grabbing the model itself.

Operation Instructions
The larger and softer matter model is better for demonstrating shear strains, while the smaller and stiffer matter model is better for demonstrating compression and tension strains.
