Haptic System for Determining the Young Modulus of Materials

Maria Teresa Restivo, Antonio M Lopes, Linda Padilla, Pedro Chaves, Teresa Duarte


This work describes the HapticBender: a haptic virtual experiment for determining the Young Modulus of materials. The Young Modulus is related to the stiffness of a material and is one of the most important properties of materials in the area of Materials Engineering and Technological Processes. The experiment is an evolution of an existing system where new features have been integrated. The HapticBender has been assessed trough the analysis of questionnaires answered by students sample that performed experimental work for determining the Young Modulus.
