HST19 Pin Jointed Frameworks

The HST19 Pin Jointed Frameworks training equipment is designed for educational institutes to investigate the effects of applying load forces to the different pin-jointed frameworks. The training equipment enables students to fit it into the structure test frame and calculate the strain, stress & joint deflection. The entire training equipment kit is available with tools and an instruction manual to perform the different laws of Castiglianos Theorem, statically determinate, stress, strain, resolution of joints, area, modulus of elasticity, reactions and Bow’s notation.  

Experimental capabilities:

  • To allow the study of strains within various true pin-jointed frameworks
  • To allow the study of stresses within various true pin-jointed frameworks
  • Comparison of different frameworks
  • Comparison of actual and theoretical results
