HFC14 Wall Jib Crane

The HFC14 Wall Jib Crane training equipment is designed for the demonstration of the concept of the triangle of forces through the use of a wall jib crane. The equipment enables students to perform experiments and determine forces in the parts of the jib crane. The experiment hardware is equipped with a crane with a compression jib and tension tie with adjustable length. It allows direct measurement and recording of forces.

Experimental Capabilities:

  • To determine the experimental values of the forces in
  • the principal parts of the jib crane.
  • To study the effect of altering the length of the tie to
  • change the geometry.
  • To compare the results with the forces obtained from
  • graphical solutions using a polygon or a triangle of
  • forces.
