Deformation of Frames Model MT 035

A frame is a bent beam with rigid corners which creates a so-called structure gauge. This means that it spans a gap while at the same time creating height.
Sci-tech Deformation of Frames Model MT 035 includes a typical U-shaped frame, such as is used in the construction of halls for example.

Item Description

* Elastic deformation of a statically determinate or indeterminate frame under point load1
* U-shaped and S-shaped frame1
