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.

HST45 Buckling of Struts

This apparatus mounts inside the HST1 Universal Frame and Stand (sold separately) and allows the study of the collapse (buckling) loads of metal specimens of varying length and compares this with Euler's theory and equations.

HST46 Combined Shear Force & Bending Moment Apparatus

This compact unit allows the observation and analysis of both Shear Force and Bending Moment within one unit, which is mounted inside the HST1 universal Frame and Stand (sold separately).

A rigid, aluminium beam is cut into two unequal lengths, creating a ‘cut’ section. Each beam is then simply supported on vertical supports. Each support can be moved along the beam section length creating varied support positions. At the ‘cut’ section, a deep groove ball bearing in one beam runs within a block in the other beam. This allows for both vertical movement (shear) and rotation (bending) to occur.
