PLASTIC BENDING OF PORTALS
An experimental apparatus to provide students with extended investigations into realistic structures including determining the points of failure of a loaded portal frame and also identifying the modes of failure.
ESSENTIAL BASE UNIT:
The STR16 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 STR16
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 STR16
A set of 12 annealed mild steel replacement portal frames for use with STR16 Bending of Portals 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).
