Product number: HSTS
Enables a wide variety of experiments within the Structures range to be simulated prior to testing on the experiment hardware.
It compliments the experiment hardware and allows students to vary a wide range of experiment parameters that are not available on the hardware itself.
The HSTS can be run in a standalone mode away from hardware (offline), or accompanying the hardware experiment (online) as it is being run making it an invaluable tool for comparing actual and theoretical hardware results.
Parameters that can be widely adjusted include: Load, Modulus of Elasticity, Material, Material width/height/diameters/lengths.
The students are also able to store, retrieve, manipulate, print and graphically represent data captured from certain experiments.
Data stored can be imported in spreadsheet software for further analysis and presentation.
