SE 100 Frame for load testing 400kN

- Testing frame for loading experiments on components from steelwork and civil engineering
- Specially for large components in 1:1 scale
- Double frame with intermediate space, for components longer than the size of the frame opening
- Test forces up to 400 kN


Technical Description

This testing frame is primarily used for loading experiments on components from steelwork and civil engineering. It is specially designed for large components in 1:1 scale. The design with its double frame and intermediate space permits specimens longer than the size of the frame opening to be investigated. In this way the possible uses of the testing frame are almost unlimited. The frame components are manufactured from U section St52. The corners of the frame are formed by joints rigid to bending, each is fastened together with 9 high-strength bolts. The testing frame is delivered in pre-assembled modules; it is assembled on site and placed on four adjustable, vibration damping bearings. The hydraulic ram systems available as accessories are on rollers and can be positioned as required within the frame.  

Learning Objectives / Experiments

- Bending, loading, compression experiments on large girders, beams, trusses and other components from the area of steelwork and civil engineering
