The laboratory stand is designed for carrying out the experiments studying “Strength of materials” of technical mechanics course at higher technical educational institutions. The stand allows to determine loss of steadiness under compression, to determine deflection values.
Structurally, the stand is made in the form of a prefabricated base on which there are two brackets supporting a rod of great flexibility. The brackets are equipped with centering devices for round rods. On the upper bracket there is a pin with weights to create a deformation of the rod of great flexibility. To determine the magnitude of the deflection of a rod of great flexibility, indicator heads are mounted on the base.
