AFME003 Shear Force
This equipment is for mechanical engineering department or mechanics engineering department in university, it’s for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Engineering Mechanics, Solid Mechanics major and other mechanics related department.
This equipment is used for measurement of shear force on a section of a beam from which comparison with theoretical values can be made. It is to be used with Universal Base Frame.
The beam has two parts with one part having ball bearings travel on flat vertical surface of the other part, an overhung spring balance measures the shear force and an underhung spring is provided to resist bending moment. The beam rests on two round supports. Load hangers and weights slide along the beam.
Instruction manual is also included.
