The equipment allows measurement of deflections and axial forces in pin-jointed truss members when a redundant member is added. It is to be used with ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).
A wall mounted truss frame has a pinned upper joint and the lower joint a roller bearing on a support. There are 7 truss members and an extra member with an adjustable length. Load is applied by a load hanger and weights. Deflection is measured by a dial indicator. Each truss member has a strain gauge which is wired to form a full bridge with temperature compensation and zero adjustment in the strain indicator.
Instruction manual is also included.
- Study of strains, stresses, forces and deflections in a statically determinate and indeterminate structure
- Force analysis by Method of Joints
- Force analysis by the use of the strain energy method.
