This equipment allows measurement of cable tension resulting from uniform and non-uniform distributed and point loads on the rigid deck. It is to be used with ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied) for attachment of the accessories.

A light metal alloy with stiffening ribs is carried by two rows of nine equally spaced hangers, one on each side. Each row of hangers has a flexible steel cable support whose length simulates a parabolic curve. Each end of the cable passes over a pulley to a load hanger. Special loads are provided to simulate uniform distribution load and movable point load.

Instruction manual is also included.

  • Demonstration of the characteristics of a simple suspension bridge

  • Examination of the relationship between applied loads and the suspension cable tension

  • Observation of the stability of the structure

  • Comparison of behavior to simplified cable theory
