SM-1421 Parabolic Arch Apparatus

In this apparatus the major components are arch, point or distributed load and dial gauge. Out of two ends of the arch one is fixed and the other one is on the roller bearing.

The purpose of dial gauge is to measure the deflection of arc under the horizontal thrust which is created by applying loads on the arch. Loads are applied through vertically suspended hangers with the arch at equal distances.
