Nex t Generat i on S tructures
overv i ew of the ful l product range
The next generation Structures range is compact, robust and offers a clearer demonstration of experiments. It builds on the tried and tested modular technology but is easier to set up and use, taking performance to the next level. The new benchtop platform-based mounting frame ( STS1) is solid and stable, allowing
Essential Base Unit (STS1)
Experiment modules (STS2–STS22)
easy viewing of experiments from all angles: perfect for use by groups of students and for longer range viewing in classroom demonstrations.
STS Exper iment s pos t er
The USB interface hub means this entire range has VDAS ® Onboard. The hub directly connects to a computer (not supplied) running VDAS ® software which accurately simulates all 21 experiment modules without the need of the Structures hardware.
The 21 experiment modules teach basic structural principles relating to beams, bridges, cantilevers, arches, struts, davits, weight, reaction, moment, shear force and torsion.
