This apparatus explains the creep behaviors of different materials (Lead and PP) varying creep rates or temperature dependent creep behavior can be demonstrated in a simple creep rupture test.
Typical phenomena such as phases of varying creep rates or temperature-dependent creep behavior can be demonstrated in a simple creep rupture test using this apparatus. To obtain acceptable creep rates at room temperature, flat lead and plastic specimens are used.
The unit comprises a base plate, support pillar with adjustable end stop, transmission lever and load weight. To avoid placing bending loads on the specimen, the specimen holders are equipped with knife-edge bearings. With the aid of a transparent conditioning box with thermal storage elements, experiments can be performed above or below room temperature
