Description of Forces in a Truss (Resolution)
A two bay, 45° cantilevered truss is suspended from the inside vertical edge of the Universal Frame and Stand . At the far end of the truss a screwjack loading mechanism with integral load cell applying the Forces in a Truss loading.
Each Forces in a Truss member is joined at its end by means of pins, which make up the true pin jointed assembly. The strain and hence force exerted in each member is measured using strain gauge technology applied to each truss member. The outputs from the member strain gauges and screw jack load cell are fed directly into the Interface. A comprehensive instruction manual for lecturer and student, giving full details on apparatus assembly and operation as well as example results. All necessary assembly and operational tools are provided.
