Structures Teaching Equipment

By Duff and Macintosh

Statics fundamentals

A series of simple but stimulating experiments that each fit onto a common work panel. The experiments explore different aspects of static equilibrium. These help guide students into other topics, covered by the modular Structures range.

The Structures modular range

TecQuipment’s modular Structures range offers a cost-effective, flexible teaching system that we believe is the most advanced product in its field.

The range teaches basic principles to more advanced theory. It has 17 desk-mounting hardware experiment modules supported by full automatic data acquisition, and TecQuipment's powerful and popular Structures Software (STRS).

You can use the hardware modules and the Structures Software together or as stand-alone products. However, using both with automatic data acquisition gives a powerful teaching solution.

In addition, the products include a full selection of user guides, student guides, lecturer guides, textbook and other supporting material. These work together so anyone using the equipment gets the best from it - teachers and students alike.

Flexible and modular

A key feature of this range is its flexibility. The hardware modules and instrumentarion fix easily to an ergonomic test frame (STR1). They are easily removed and swapped for another experiment, making sensible use of laboratory space and time. The Structures Software fully supports each hardware module, and each experiment can show several principles. And because the range is modular, you can buy additional hardware modules as you need them.

Authentic software simulation

By providing virtual experiments, the software offers an affordable, versatile and effective method for students to quickly learn structures principles. Not only does it allow students the flexibility of working away from the laboratory, it also expands experiments beyond the limits of the hardware.

Automatic data acquisition

The use of digital instrumentation, automatic data acquisition and software mean students learn efficiently and make the best use of laboratory time. And there are no difficult-to-read instruments or abstract experiment set-ups to distract them.

Complementary to other experiments in the TecQuipment range

The Structures range sits naturally alongside and complements many of the experiments in our Materials Testing and Properties range, particularly in the areas of beams struts, strain gauges and stress analysis.
