Product number: HST20

An inverted aluminium T-beam is mounted between two simple supports on point contacts. The load onto the T-beam is applied using a screw jack mechanism with integral load cell. The load cell arrangement and supports create a three point loading.

A number of precision strain gauges are accurately located on the T-beam specimen. These strain gauges are paired with temperature compensation dummy gauges for output stability. Each strain gauge pair is numbered for accurate connection to the HDA200 Interface (sold separately).

The signals from the loading mechanism and strain gauges are fed directly into the HDA200 Interface (sold separately).
