(Product number: HST17
A two bay, 45° cantilevered truss is suspended from the inside vertical edge of the HST1 Universal Frame and Stand (sold separately). At the far end of the truss a screwjack loading mechanism with integral load cell applies the truss loading.
Each truss member is joined at its end by means of pins, which make up the true pin jointed assembly. The strain and hence force exerted in each member is measured using strain gauge technology applied to each truss member. The outputs from the member strain gauges and screw jack load cell are fed directly into the HDA200 Interface (sold separately).
