HVT9 Torsional Vibration Apparatus

HVT9 Torsional Vibration Apparatus

The equipment provides a basic range of torsional vibration experiments. A wire rod clamped in a wall mounted bracket has a heavy disc attached to the lower end. A solid ring can be located over the disc to increase its inertia. Steel and brass rods of two different diameters are included. All brackets, clamps and adapters are supplied.

This equipment is part of a range designed to both demonstrate and experimentally confirm basic engineering principles. Great care has been given to each item so as to provide wide experimental scope without unduly complicating or compromising the design. Each piece of apparatus is self-contained and compact. Setting up time is minimal, and all measurements are made with the simplest possible instrumentation, so that the student involvement is purely with the engineering principles being taught.
