AFME006 Unsymmetrical Cantilever
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.
The apparatus is used for studying a cantilever deflection and determining shear center when the plane of loading does not co-inside with the axis of symmetry of the cross section. It is to be used with Universal Base Frame or ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).
The cantilever under test is mounted horizontally on a support column at one end. The mounted end can be rotated to indicate its position relative to a fixed angular scale. Load is applied through a weight hanger and weights at the free end. A circular disc is attached to the free end and vertical and horizontal displacements may be measured by two dial indicators. The pin where weight hanger is hung can be moved laterally on the circular disc across and outside the section of the cantilever to determine shear center.
Instruction manual is also included.
Vertical and horizontal displacements vs angular positions for an applied load.
Relationship between the vertical and horizontal deflections and the principal
Determination of area moment of inertia around neutral axis.
Bottom with adjustable rubber to adjust the height.
The total weight is less than 200kgs.
