Product number: HST11

Three piers measure vertical reaction forces with their integral load cell which connect directly to the HDA200 Interface (sold separately). Each pier caters for simply supported, or continuous beams and their beam attachments allow for rotation but no vertical movement during testing.

Sinking supports can be studied due to each piers height adjustment system and integral dial gauge attached. A fourth pier clamps a cantilever or the fixed end of a beam. A double pulley assembly provides vertical loading of the beam. Point loads and uniformly distributed loads (UDL) can be applied to the beams using the set of calibrated weights and hangers supplied.

Three test beams in steel, aluminium and brass are supplied and their deflections are monitored using dial gauges on moveable stands.
