A Millimeter Scale Flexural Testing System for Measuring the Mechanical Properties of Marine Sponge Spicules Michael A. Monn1, Jarod Ferreira1, Jianzhe Yang1, Haneesh Kesari1 1School of Engineering, Brown University We present a protocol for performing three-point bending tests on sub-millimeter scale fibers using a custom-built mechanical testing device. The device can measure forces ranging from 20 µN up to 10 N and can therefore accommodate a variety of fiber sizes.
