Combine Bending and Torsion of Bars Apparatus (SMT-SM-22)

  • As the Bending and torsion are typical loads due to which components failure occur. A number of different factors play a role in this, including the material, the cross-section of the bar, the clamping length and the method of bearing support. This Apparatus investigates the influence of these factors on the deformation of a bar under bending load or twisting moment. For direct comparison set of test bars has been assembled. The bar under investigation is fixed to two movable support blocks and loaded down by a weight. 
  • A dial gauge records the resulting deformation. The support blocks include clamping chucks to hold the torsion bars and supports for the bars in the bend test. The supports offer a range of clamping options, enabling statically determinate or indeterminate bearing supports to be investigated. 
  • The twisting moment is applied by a device mounted on a support block. The point of load application to generate the bending moment is adjustable. 
  • The unit has Optional Software for computer connectivity, monitoring & display and data analysis on computer.
