ready assembled Warren truss
- Warren truss beams are frequently used on steel constructions.
- Experiments with the truss SE 130.01are mounted on the frame of the SE 130
- The mechanical construction of the truss ensures that only tensile or compressive forces are active in the bars.
- The connection between the bars by means of node disks is “hinged”.
- So this can be described as an ideal truss.
- The force in the bars is measured using strain gauge measurement.
- Owing to the symmetrical construction, only half of the bars have measuring points on them.
- All strain gauge connections are housed together in the strain gauge box.
- investigation of bar forces in a single plane, statically determinate truss
- ready assembled Warren truss beam
- influence of dead-weight minimised by horizontal experiment layout
- any straight and inclined load cases possible
- pre-balanced strain gauge connection box
- SE 130.01is a supplementary set for the main unit SE 130
