The laboratory stand is designed for carrying out laboratory works in “Theoretical mehcnics” when studying technical mechanics at higher educational institutions with non-machine-building specialisation and at secondary educational institutions with machine-building and instrument-making specialisation. The stand provides modelling of a beam lying on hinged immovable and hinged movable supports with one fixed end, allows to determine values of support beam reactions.
Structurally, the stand is made in the form of a prefabricated base with tensometric supports, allowing to determine the horizontal and vertical components of the support reactions. The cantilever beam is fixed to the supports. The loading of the beam with distributed forces is carried out using beams, concentrated forces with the help of loads suspended on flexible cables through blocks that can be moved along the beam.
