Shear Force In A Beam

Description of Shear Force In A Beam

The experiment hardware is a simply supported beam with a ‘cut’. The beam fits onto a Multi Structures Test Frame.

A mechanism bridges the cut, which stops the beam collapsing and allows movement in the shear direction only. An electronic load cell measures the force, and connects to a Multi-Channel Digital Transducer Display .Students apply loads at set positions using hangers holding various masses.

Features of Shear Force In A Beam
