One experment that we conducted using the STR4 was on simple beam deflections. Specifically, this experiment aims:
- To determine the maximum deflection of a simple beam with length, L, due to a concentrated load P with varying magnitude applied at mid span.
- To find the relationship between the maximum deflection and a point loading, P, applied at mid span.
- To compare the maximum deflections of two types of beams with different materials and cross-section properties and determine the effect of these properties on beam deflection.
