BUCKLING OF STRUTS
An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the deflection and stability of struts (slender columns).
ESSENTIAL BASE UNIT:
The STR12 is part of a modular system and needs the following base unit
A sturdy lightweight aluminium bench-mounting frame to provide rigid support for the interchangeable experimental modules in TecQuipment's Structures Range (STR2 -STR20).
Required supporting products for the STR12
A hardware module to simultaneously measure and display the output of up to 4 force sensors mounted on experiments in TecQuipment's Structures Range (STR2 -STR20).
Optional supporting products for the STR12
A computer interface module with ADA software that allows the hardware experiments in TecQuipment's Structures Range to be interfaced to a PC (not included).
