Deflection of Curved Bar Apparatus Model MT 053

Sci-tech Deflection of Curved Bar Apparatus Model MT 053 is designed to enable the student to determine experimentally the horizontal and vertical displacements at the free end of various curved bars when subject to single concentrated load.

Item Description

Sci-tech Deflection of Curved Bar Apparatus Model MT 053 consists of a structure of aluminum and steel that allows the incorporation of different curved bars to be studied. It allows tests with curved bars of different shape.
The use of two dial gauges placed perpendicularly to each other makes it possible to determine the displacements produced in both directions, up to a maximum range of 10 mm.
The load is applied when hanging weights in the application point. A set of weights in supplied with the unit. A steel hook is also included for these weights, and it must be hung in the application point of the force.

Technical Specifications
