SR1634 Tension Coefficients Didactic Education Equipment For School Lab Mechanical Experiment Equipment
This equipment is for mechanical engineering department or mechanics engineering department in university, it’s for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Engineering Mechanics, Solid Mechanics major and other mechanics related department.
The equipment demonstrates the use of tension coefficients in resolving three dimensional forces. It is to be used with ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).
A space frame is constructed from two tension members and one compression member. Each member has a built-in spring balance. The three members are joined together at an apex where a load is suspended. The other end of the compression member is a ball joint fixed to the bed and the other ends of the tension members have chains for attachment to two stationary columns. All joints can be slightly swiveled to minimize fixing moment. Resulting force for each member is measured by a three dimensions co-ordinate scale.
Instruction manual is also included.
Bottom with adjustable rubber to adjust the height.
The total weight is less than 200kgs.
Working environment: -10℃~40℃， Humidity<85%
