DT-8.04 Portal Frame Apparatus


DT-8.04 Portal Frame Apparatus


A simple piece of apparatus designed for use in conjunction with theoretical studies in the deflections of a simple rectangular portal frame subject to varying applied loads.

It can be used by the student to determine experimentally:-

  1. The deflection of the frame when subject to horizontal loading.
  2. The deflection of the frame when subject to vertical loading.

The specimen portal frame is attached to a rigid base by simple clamps and loads can be applied by mass hangers and a suitable ranges of masses.

The horizontal and vertical deflections to the frame can be conveniently measured by means of dial gauges.

Complete with masses.
