Quantity

A lightweight yet strong bench-mounting frame that holds interchangeable experiment modules and instrumentation from the TecQuipment Structures range. 

The frame has specially designed slots and self-positioning nuts that hold the Structures experiments and instruments. This fixing system is quick and easy to use. It allows students to change, position and secure each experiment. Adjustable feet support the frame to allow students to level the apparatus before use. 

Supplied in kit form with instructions for use and a textbook.

STR10 - Experiment

STR11 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the important features of a fixed-arch and to illustrate how a structure applies loading to its surroundings when the footings are very hard in all directions.

STR12 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the deflection and stability of struts (slender columns).

STR13 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the properties of statically indeterminate and continuous beams.

STR14 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the relationships between load horizontal deflection, vertical deflection and stability in commonly used curved structures and davits and to compare the results with theoretical values.

STR15 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the practical plastic bending of beams.

STR16 - Experiment

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.

STR7 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate deflection and stability within a structure in relation to beams with unsymmetrical sections.

STR8 - Experiment

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.

STR9 - Experiment

An experimental apparatus to allow students to investigate the important features of a three-pinned arch.
