Modular Structures Experiments
PIN JOINTED FRAMEWORKS
An experimental apparatus to allow students to create a wide selection of pin-jointed frameworks and then investigate the effects resulting from applying loading forces to them.
ESSENTIAL BASE UNIT:
The STR8 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 STR8
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 STR8
An additional load cell for the STR8 Pin-Jointed Frameworks apparatus to allow multiple loads to be simultaneously applied and measured to the test framework.
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 STR8
An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the principles of redundancy and aspects of safety critical structures using determinate and indeterminate framed structures.
