MM 500-114 SHEAR FORCE 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.

The beam has two parts with one part having ball bearings travel on flat vertical surface of the other part. An overhung spring balance measures the shear force and an underhung spring resists bending moment. The beam rests on two round supports. Load hangers and weights slide along the beam.
