SM-1407 Deformation of Curved Beam

This apparatus is design to demonstrate phenomena of deflection in a curved bar. In this apparatus micrometer is attached to the frame to calculate the extent of deflection.

The study of how curved bars deflect is thus, important so as to estimate the total mechanical displacement of structures that incorporate curved sections. One of the more effective methods used to estimate deflections in curved bars come from Castiglione’s first theorem or from a unit-load method.
