Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments


The buckling of struts gives a visualization and proof of basic concepts such as the relationship between strut length, end conditions and buckling load. An integral load cell connected to a Digital Force Display displays the load on the strut as it is compressed. A magnetic deflection scale shows how much the strut buckles.


Experiments: Buckling load of as pinned-end strut, The effect of end conditions on the buckling load.
