FREE VIBRATIONS TEST FRAME

For use with TecQuipment’s Free Vibrations Experiments, the Test Frame fits on any standard desk or bench top. Students, teachers or lecturers fit the parts of their free vibrations experiments to the Test Frame to study or demonstrate a free vibrations topic.

The Test Frame has two extruded alloy horizontal members each with slotted fixing points to all four sides. The two triangular sides each have adjustable levelling feet. A stable, level Test Frame is essential in vibration experiments to give repeatable and accurate results.

The sturdy construction is necessary for accurate results in vibration experiments, but this also gives the frame a long service life. Despite its sturdy construction, the frame is light enough for two people to move it around the classroom easily.

TecQuipment include a storage tray and lid with the Test Frame. This is useful to store tools and smaller parts of your optional experiments, helping prevent accidental loss or damage. The Test Frame also includes a hexagon tool and a spirit level for easy assembly and levelling.

This package includes all products from the Vibration section of TecQuipment’s Theory of Machines range (TM160–TM167 and TM1016). It offers multiple experiments in both free and forced vibrations, and includes our Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS® mkII).

VDAS TM165 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that allows students to investigate the oscillatory motion of a disc attached to a slender rod.

VDAS TM167 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that allows students to investigate the oscillatory motion of a rigid beam, pivoted at one end and suspended by a spring at the other.

TM161 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that allows students to study simple harmonic motion and the factors that affect the period of oscillation of pendulums.

TM162 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that allows students to study simple harmonic motion and the factors that affect the period of oscillation of bifilar and trifilar pendulums

TM163 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that shows students how to calculate and find the centre of percussion of a compound pendulum.

VDAS TM164 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that shows students the oscillatory motion of a mass-spring system in terms of both displacement and acceleration.

VDAS TM166 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus that allows students to use fundamental theory and Rayleigh’s approximation to calculate the frequency of oscillation of a cantilever.
