Structures & Materials Testers
We have two Structures & Materials Testers – one wireless Go Direct Structures & Materials Tester and one wired. It allows students to explore the effect that beam dimensions and shape have on structure flexibility and strength, investigate how trusses distribute weight, and ultimately build and test their own designs.
The Go Direct® Structures & Materials Tester gives teachers a great way to motivate their students when it is used for engineering activities and competitions. Go Direct Structures & Materials Tester connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your device.
The Vernier Structures & Materials Tester enables students to calculate the strength of model bridges and engineered structures by measuring an applied load. Students can also evaluate stresses and strains and the relative properties of materials by deploying both load and displacement sensors.
