ST 370 COLUMN BUCKLING
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    The equipment is used for studying strut buckling under load. It is to be used with ST300 Universal Structural Frame or ST305 Universal Base Frame.

    The top frame has a loading screw which pushes a cylindrical strut support sliding in a bushing. The bottom frame has a load cell and a cylindrical strut support in a socket.

    Each strut has end conditions for knife-edge or built – in. The load reading is by an indicator. A small lateral load is applied by means of a pulley and a weight hanger. A dial indicator measures the lateral deflection.
