The STRUCTURES range enables clear and comprehensive learning of structural STATICS covering a variety of theories and topics within Architectural, Mechanical, Civil and Structural Engineering.
These include FORCE, BENDING, SHEAR, ELASTICITY, BEAMS, ARCHED BRIDGES, SUSPENSION BRIDGES, TRUSSES, FRAMEWORKS and PORTALS. The STRUCTURES hardware can be connected to the Hi-Tech Education HDA200 Interface creating a stand alone solution within the laboratory. Alternatively the STRUCTURES hardware can be fully Data Acquisitioned in conjunction with the experiment software. With the software the students can benefit from a wider learning experience.
Floor mounted frame for use with nearly all Hi-Tech STRUCTURES hardware. The frame has an internal working area of 1.22 x 0.76metres. The frame facilitates quick and easy attachment of all experiments and is backward compatible with earlier versions of Hi-Tech experiments. A full set of assembly instructions and tools are supplied.
The HST100 Bench Mounted Frame extends the variety available to our customers when mounting a Hi-Tech STRUCTURES Experiment. If space is limited to bench tops only this frame is ideal within the laboratory. It offers the same working area as the HST1 Universal Frame and Stand.
This unique and compact unit is essential for all Hi-Tech STRUCTURES experiments that come fitted with data output, requiring the parameters of Force, Strain, Deflection and Angle to be monitored and used with Experimental software.
A visually realistic Suspension Bridge with rigid deck, vertical tie rods and suspension cable allowing students to compare theoretical and experimental cable tensions and to study the performance of the bridge under varying load conditions.
Demonstration of the theory of plastic bending of a beam section and increase in bending moment due to redundancy. Students study the plastic collapse of a simply supported beam; a propped cantilever and a fixed beam, along with the collapse load for the beam.
