PLASTIC BENDING OF BEAMS
An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the practical plastic bending of beams.
ESSENTIAL BASE UNIT:
The STR15 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 STR15
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 STR15
A set of 12 fully annealed mild steel replacement specimen beams for use with STR15 Plastic Bending of Beams apparatus.
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).
Products with similar functionality to the STR15
Test leaf Spring, knife edges and attachments to allow leaf spring and beam bending tests with TecQuipment's SM1000 Universal Test Machine.
