Description of Column Buckling
The Column Buckling equipment is used for studying strut buckling under load. Column Buckling is to be used with Universal Structural Frame or Universal Base Frame. The top frame has a loading screw which pushes a cylindrical strut support sliding in a bushing. The bottom frame has a load cell and a cylindrical strut support in a socket. Each strut has end conditions for knife edge or built in. The load reading is by an indicator. A small lateral load is applied by means of a pulley and a weight hanger. A dial indicator measures the lateral deflection.
