Bending Moment and Shear Force Apparatus - (SISBMS-15)
This demonstration unit facilitates the experimental investigation of the progression of the bending moment and shearing forces on a bar subject to point loads. In addition, the section principle commonly used in mechanics can be demonstrated. Due to the use of a low friction joint with two degrees of freedom at 1/3 of the span and two dynamometers, the measurements can be recorded directly from the bar. The deflection of the bar as result of the travel of the dynamometers and the horizontal alignment can be compensated and regulated using two adjustment bolts. The bar is loaded with graduated sets of weights that can be attached at any point on the bar.
