HST13 Deflections of Beams and Cantilevers
For studying the Deflections of Beams and Cantilevers.
- Two support brackets fix into the HST1 Universal Frame and Stand (not supplied) allowing the support of beams along their length and at different spans. Each support bracket comes supplied with knife edges or clamp plates to enable different end fixing conditions to be used, i.e. simply supported, cantilever, propped cantilever and encastre (built in). Cantilevers can be created using one of the supports fitted with a clamp supplied.
- Three moveable dial gauges, mounted on moveable stands measure beam deflections and slope. Three test beams are supplied in steel, brass and aluminium. Each beam is supported and then loaded using the beam clamps, hangers and calibrated weights provided. Point and uniformly distributed loads can be applied to the beam using the weights and hangers supplied.
