This equipment allows a study on the relation between deflection of a portal frame under loads in plastic condition. It is to be used with ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied) for attachment of the accessories.

A portal frame is fixed at both legs on two supports. Loads are applied vertically on the cross member and/or horizontally on one of the legs by force load cell. Deflection of the frame is measured by long stroke displacement force load cell. Loads are applied until frame collapses.

Instruction manual is also included.

  • Elastic bending to plastic deformation of portal frames.

  • Collapse load and the formation of plastic hinges.

  • Deformation due to single and combined loads on a portal frame.

  • Shape of a collapsed portal due to hinge formation.
