Basic Solid Mechanics Experiments

Deflection of Beams and Cantilevers teaching a visualization and proof of the basic concepts of beam deflection, end fixing conditions and Young’ modulus. The apparatus enables a range of laboratory, classroom and computer-based experiments for civil, mechanical, aeronautical and structural engineering students.


Experiments: Deflection of a cantilever, Deflection of a simply supported beam, The shape of a deflected beam, Circular bending.
