EF-1.3a Statics – Beams

The EF-1.3a Beams experiment kit enables students to analyse the behaviour of different types of beams under a variety of load conditions.

Description

The EF-1.3a Beams experiment kit enables students to analyse the behaviour of different types of beams under a variety of load conditions.

The Engineering Fundamentals range is designed to enable students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of engineering by the process of learning via hands-on experimentation. The modular hands-on tray based system is supplied in conjunction with a multifunctional Base Unit enabling the student to conduct their own experiments in subjects such as Statics, Dynamics, Mechanisms and Kinematics.

Each kit is supplied with a highly visual user friendly operational guide, enabling the student to understand the theory of the subject by the application of practical experimentation.
