Euler Buckling of Struts

This product helps students to understand the nature of buckling in slender beams that simulate ‘struts’. Students fit one of a choice of struts between the two major parts of the product. One part has a hand-operated control to apply the buckling force. The other part has a load cell to measure the applied load.

Learning Outcomes

  • Strut length and the collapse load
  • Euler’s critical load
  • Slenderness ratio
  • Effective length
  • The collapse load and strut fixings, including:
    • Pinned-pinned
    • Fixed-pinned
    • Fixed-fixed

Key Features

  • Includes different fixings and a selection of different length specimen struts for multiple experiments
  • Includes Vernier caliper for measurement of strut cross-section
  • Supplied with a storage tray to keep smaller items safe
  • Works with user-friendly software (VDAS®)
