This bench top apparatus is used for studying buckling on struts under various end conditions.
The apparatus consists of two vertical columns where load is applied by a screw via a sliding support. Strut support for knife edge or built-in is a cylinder in a socket. Each strut has end conditions for knife-edge or built-in. Load on the strut is measured by a load cell and deflection is measured by a dial gauge. Side loading is by a weight hanger and weights. Height of loading beam is adjustable to accommodate different strut lengths.
Instruction manual is also included.
- Determination of flexural rigidity and comparison with theoretical value.
- Determination of flexural rigidity under different end conditions.
- Determination of load VS deflection and crippling loads for strut of different lengths and cross sections.
- Effects of side load and eccentric loading.
