AFME011 Continuous Beam
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 equipment is used for measurement of the reactions of a two-span continuous beam with and without settlement of a support. It is to be used with Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).
The equipment consists of a two-span continuous beam supported by two vertical force supports and a built-in/knife edge support. The settlement of each load measuring support is measured by a dial indicator and can be simulated by height compensation mechanism. Three movable load hangers with a set of weights for downward as well as upward loading are provided. Each beam deflection is measured by a dial indicator.
Instruction manual is also included.
