ST 375 TORSION OF RODS AND TUBES
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The equipment is used for the investigation of torsion and torsional rigidity in rods, and tubes. It is to be used with ST305 Universal Base Frame or ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).

The apparatus has two columns attached to the base frame. One end of the specimen is clamped to one of the column. A lever can be clamped to the specimen at the test length from the first column for measurement of the angle of twist. A pulley for load hanging can be freely rotated in the second column. The other end of the specimen is clamped to the pulley.

Measurement of angle of twist is by a dial indicator on the arm, and of torque is by the load and pulley diameter.

Instruction manual is also included.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • The relationship between specimen length, torque and angular deflection
  • The behavior of specimens of different materials and cross-sections
  • Comparison of angular deflection in similar hollow and solid rods.
  • Polar moment of inertia.
