This accessory for WP 310 allows the investigation of a bending beam. The relationship between load and elastic deformation can be demonstrated. The influence of the modulus of elasticity and second moment of area is also demonstrated.
The bending beam is mounted on two supports and loaded with a point force generated by the test device. By sliding the bearing it is possible to apply the force in different positions and change the support width.
An I-section steel beam is bolted to the lower cross-member on the WP 310 and is used as the base.
A set of specimens made of steel is available as accessory WP 310.81.
