EF-1.5 Statics Torsion


EF-1.5 Statics Torsion

The EF-1.5 – Torsion experiment kit enables students to understand the relationship between torsion and the angle of twist for any given material.


The EF-1.5 – Torsion experiment kit enables students to understand the relationship between torsion and the angle of twist for any given material.

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.

Essential Accessories

  • Base Unit EF-BU

Optional Accessories

Workstation EF-WS

The workstation can be used as a demonstration platform at the front of the classroom, but also doubles up as a storage unit for the experiment trays and EF-BU Base Units.
Castors allow the entire Workstation and its contents to easily be wheeled between classrooms.
The workstation can be configured to store:
– Up to 12 Base Units and a maximum of 18 trays
(2 Base Units occupy the space of 1 Tray).
– 12 Base Units and 12 trays.
– 18 trays if storing no Base Units.

EF1-SPARES (recommended)

A selection of the most commonly used parts in the EF kits, provided in a durable storage tray which can easily be stored along with the rest of the EF kits. By having a spares kit in the classroom, experiments can be varied. In addition misplaced or damaged items can be replaced quickly without any downtime.
