Structurally, the training laboratory equipment consists of measuring unit and a table with assembled plate with grooves for fixing the replicable racks and fixtures.
Measuring unit is represented as a REA housing with mounted inside:
- power supply unit;
- strain measurement plug-in board;
- PC communication plug-in board.
At the front panel of measuring unit are placed button switch and USB – port for connection to the PC. At the back panel are placed connectors for connecting sensors and power supply.
The stand is accompanied with a set of samples for testing and a storage unit for their placement.
Before performing the laboratory work, prepare a stand by installing the necessary sample for testing. Samples for measurements with strain gauges are connected directly to the measurement unit. Deformation of samples without strain gauges is recorded by measuring heads with electronic indication. Force pick up is also connected to the measurement unit.
The stand is accompanied with:
- a set of methodical and technical documentation dedicated for teaching staff;
