EF-1.3 Statics – Beams

The EF-1.3 – Beams experiment kit enables students to analyse the behaviour of different types of beams under a variety of load conditions and also build and test a selection of portal and truss frames.

Description

The EF-1.3 – Beams experiment kit enables students to analyse the behaviour of different types of beams under a variety of load conditions and also build and test a selection of portal and truss frames.

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.
