DT-8.01 – Strut Buckling Apparatus

 

DT-8.01 – Strut Buckling Apparatus

This apparatus enables the student to determine experimentally the buckling load for struts of varying slenderness ratios and end fixing conditions.

Description

This apparatus enables the student to determine experimentally the buckling load for struts of varying slenderness ratios and end fixing conditions.

Varying lengths of struts can be subjected to direct axial loading and the critical load determined accurately.

Struts with rigidly fixed or pin-jointed end conditions may be tested and the effect of these end conditions on the buckling load is demonstrated.

The load is applied by means of a differential screw to provide sensitive adjustment.

A load cell and dial gauge are used to measure and indicate the load being applied to the strut.

A range of specimens is supplied as standard:

  • Specimens (mid steel): 1 off each of 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 550 and 600mm lengths with 30˚ points at each end;
  • 1 off 612mm length with flat one end and point the other;
  • 1 off 625mm length flat both ends.

Complete with specimens.
