This beam apparatus is of a universal design for use in a wide range of beam experiments with simple, built-in and sinking supports measuring of, point loads, support reactions and beam deflections.

The beam frame consists of a stainless steel angle upper cross member and two aluminum profile lower cross members, bolted to the support columns with footings.  Three spring load cells with height adjustment and a cantilever support can slide along the lower members and can be clamped at any point.  Dial indicators can slide along the upper member and can be clamped at any point.  Linear scale is attached to the upper member to indicate the positions of load cells, loads, supports and dial indicators.

      The spring load cell has a hardened steel tube sliding in a bushing with hardened steel knife edge on top of the tube.  The tube rests on a coil spring on a lead screw which provides direct load reading via a dial indicator.  The height of the knife edge can be fixed at any position by a wing bolt.

This bench top apparatus is used for studying buckling on struts under various end conditions.

The apparatus consists of two vertical columns where load is applied by a screw via a sliding support. Strut support for knife edge or built-in is a cylinder in a socket. Each strut has end conditions for knife-edge or built-in. Load on the strut is measured by a load cell and deflection is measured by a dial gauge. Side loading is by a weight hanger and weights. Height of loading beam is adjustable to accommodate different strut lengths.

Instruction manual is also included.

  • Determination of flexural rigidity and comparison with theoretical value.

  • Determination of flexural rigidity under different end conditions.

  • Determination of load VS deflection and crippling loads for strut of different

       lengths and cross sections.

  • Effects of side load and eccentric loading.

  • Basic frame
:  2 columns and sliding cross member with loading screw.
  • Maximum strut length
