(Product number: HST10
Each beam is simply supported on vertical supports which can be positioned in a variety of positions along the beam lengths. At the ‘cut’ section, a bearing in one beam rests inside a radiused pocket of the other beam. This restricts any vertical movement between the two beams (hence removes any visible shear force), but does not restrict rotation between the two beams and hence bending is not restricted.
In their unloaded state the beams are levelled using the level indicator provided. Loads are applied to the beam using the Load hangers and calibrated weights set. The force transducer connects to the HDA200 Interface (sold separately).
