Sean Delaney | Apprentice Test Technician | AMRC ASTC | S.Delaney@sheffield.ac.uk

This week I have continued to work on my vice. I have completed the vice body and have begun to produce the moving jaw. I have blocked the steel piece up, produced the step and threaded the holes for the brass packers and the vice screw.

I have also performed my presentation on the AMRC Advanced Structural Testing Centre (ASTC). I spoke about some notable tests such as the one conducted on the Game Bird light aircraft as well as the physics involved in structural testing (for example, the young modulus graph and how it is calculated). I also spoke about the testing centre’s capabilities in regards to various machines and testing procedures.
