The Buckling of Struts hardware fits onto the standard Armfield Sv100 bench mounted frame.
The kits include Aluminium struts of varying length “Short 300mm”, “Medium 330mm” and “Long 360mm which is compressed using a screw mechanism
The experiment is supplied with 3 fixing scenarios:
Both ends fixed
Both ends pinned
One end pinned with one end fixed
A fixed connection is clamped and screwed in, the pinned connection allows more movement and is nestled in a notch.
An integral load cell connected to the Armfield SV101 Interface unit displays the load on the strut as it is compressed.
