SM-216 | Beam Bending (Transverse) Vibrations Module

  • Study of flexible beam vibration
  • Customer selected beam can be tested
  • Exciter can be placed anywhere along the length of the beam
  • Masses can be modified dependent upon learning requirement
  • LxWxH: 90x450x400 mm
  • Weight: approx. 24 kg
Technical Specification
A flexible beam is supported between two end brackets which create simply supported end conditions. One end bracket allows pivoting only whilst the other allows rolling and pivoting only. One of the brackets is supported on vertical supports that can be moved depending on the beam length being used. The vertical brackets and standard-length beam are both supplied. The beam is forced to vibrate using a motor exciter. This motor exciter can be attached anywhere along the working length of the beam. The motor exciter supplied has the ability to have its mass increased by the addition of the calibrated masses supplied. These masses can also be attached in a stack at other points on the test beam. A damping tub, damping medium and damping discs are also supplied to give additional adjustment to the apparatus.
