ST 311 BENDING MOMENT
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment is used for measurement of bending moment on a section of a beam from which comparison with
theoretical values can be made. It is to be used with ST305 Universal Base Frame or ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).

The beam has two parts with a ball bearing hinge at the joint. An underhung spring balance holds the hinge in
compression, hence resists bending moment. The beam rests on two round supports. Load hangers and weights slide along the beam.

Instruction manual is also included.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Visual demonstration of the Shear Force and Bending Moment at a cut section in a beam
  • Variation in bending moment for variations in load, load position and load arrangement
  • Comparison of experimental results with theoretical values and bending moment diagrams
