The experiment hardware fits onto a Structures Test Frame
(STR1, available separately). Students use stainless-steel
members to build different pin-jointed frameworks. The
members join by slotting the ends into bosses.
The equipment includes two framework supports: a
pivoting support, and a pivoting and rolling support. Each
member has a strain gauge attached that connects to a
digital strain bridge. A load cell applies loads to the
structure at various angles. When connected to the
optional Digital Force Display (STR1a), the load cell
measures the applied load. To apply loads simultaneously,
extra load cells are available (STR8a).
A digital deflection indicator measures the deflection and
the digital strain bridge shows the strains in the members.
From this, students can calculate the forces in the
TecQuipment supplies the members in a custom-made
storage tray to avoid accidental damage. A second tray
stores the joint bosses and other loose items.
Included is a lead to connect the load cell to a Digital
Force Display (STR1a, available separately). The lecturer
guide provides details of the equipment including sample
experiment results. The student guide describes how to
use the equipment and gives experiment procedures.
For extra ‘virtual’ experiments, TecQuipment can supply
the optional TecQuipment Structures Software (STRS), for
use on a suitable computer. The virtual experiments
simulate the tests you can perform with the hardware.
They also extend the choice of tests beyond that available
using only the hardware, for example: higher loads,
uniform loads or different test specimens. This extends the
student’s learning experience.
For automatic data acquisition of your experiment results,
TecQuipment can supply the optional Automatic Data
Acquisition Unit (STR2000). Supplied as standard with the
STR2000 is TecQuipment’s Structures Software that
displays and logs your experiment results and gives the
extra virtual experiments.
