MM 500-121 DEFLECTION OF BEAMS SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This is part of MM 500 Mechanical Engineering Test Series which provides sets for various experiments on MM 500-001 Basic Panel (separately supplied) to study or demonstrate specific engineering principles. The set is supplied in plastics box.

A beam is placed on two supports and loads are applied on the beam by load hangers and weights. Displacement is measured by dial indicator.
