Suspension Cable Demonstration

Description

  1. For use with the Work Panel the kit allows several experiments with a suspension cable.
  2. Students or teachers fit the magnetic parts of the kit to the Work Panel to study or demonstrate the shapes and tensions in a suspension cable.
  3. The kit compares a suspension cable with a catenary cable and analyses results using catenary and parabolic theory.
  4. It includes a roller chain (the cable), held by magnetically mounted sprocket pulleys and a set of weight hangers and weights. Spring balances measure the tension in the cable.
  5. The versatility of the kit means that you can create symmetrical and non-symmetrical cables, with point loads or with evenly-spread loads.
