Deflection of Beam Apparatus - (SISDBA-04)
The bench mounted apparatus has a steel base with support at ends. The supports can be fitted with knife edges or clamp plates. A steel beam and two load hangers are supplied together with two dial gauges for measuring beam deflections and slopes. This equipment is part of a ranged to both, demonstrate and experimentally confirm basic engineering principles. Great care has been given to each item so as to provide wide experimental scope without unduly complicating or compromising the design. Each piece of apparatus is self-contained and compact. Setting up time is minimal, and all measurements are made with the simplest possible instrumentation, so that the student involvement is purely with the engineering principles being taught. A complete instruction manual is provided describing the apparatus, its application, experimental procedure and typical test results.
