Equilibrium in a Single Plane, Statically Determinate System

Type: SE 110.53
Name: Equilibrium in a Single Plane, Statically Determinate System

Technical Description

  The experiment is an example of the application of static conditions of equilibrium, in particular the important principle of "freeing".
  The main element of the experiment is the model of a ladder, with a movable clamped weight. The reaction at the "wall" is free while that at the baseof the ladder is fixed or pin jointed. The effective reactions can be fully compensated by attaching cable forces in x and y direction. The ladder is in a state of equilibrium, without changing its angular position and without need of the structural bearings. The ladder is "free". For students, that is a persuasive example of the principle of "freeing" in statics.
  All the component elements of the experiment are clearly laid-out and housed securely in a storage system. The complete experimental setup is arranged in the frame SE 112.
 

Learning Objectives / Experiments

Experimental investigation of the important principle of "freeing" in statics
- calculation of the reactions for a given position of

  the clamped weight and for a known angle of

  inclination
- application of the first and second conditions of

  equilibrium in statics
- full compensation for the reactions by cable forces
- influence of the position of the clamped weight on

  the reactions

- influence of the angle of inclination on the reactions
