Simple Suspension Bridge
Description of Simple Suspension Bridge
The experiment hardware fits onto the Structures Test Frame . Students use masses on weight hangers to apply various loads to a rigid deck, joined to a parabolic cable via hangers.
The suspension cable passes over pulleys at each end. One end is rigidly fixed. The other end connects to a mechanism bearing on a load cell. When connected to a Digital Force Display, the load cell measures the cable tension. The equipment includes a signal cable to connect the load cell to a Digital Force Display).
