Deflection of Beams & Cantilevers Apparatus Model MT 074

Sci-tech Deflection of Beams & Cantilevers Apparatus Model MT 074 consists of a backboard that fixes to the Structures Test Frame. Test beams fit onto the backboard using a rigid clamp and knife-edge supports. Students apply loads at any position using hangers holding various masses. Mounted on a trammel, a digital deflection indicator traverses the beam. The indicator measures beam deflection. Scales on the backboard show the position of the indicator, the loads and supports.
