SKU: TM1016 Category: Tags: ,


Allows students to investigate the free and forced vibration of a rigid beam and spring, and a simply supported beam.

Key features:

  • Quick and easy to set up bench-top unit to demonstrate free and forced vibrations – designed for teaching
  • Two different vibration systems in one self-contained unit – a ‘rigid’ beam with a spring, and a pinned-pinned (simply supported) ‘flexible’ beam
  • Non-contacting displacement sensor – for frictionless measurements
  • High-quality servomotor ‘exciter’ turns an offset mass – for forced vibrations at a constant speed
  • Offset mass position sensor – to show the phase relationship between applied force and displacement
  • Built-in accelerometer for comparison of derived and measured acceleration waveforms
  • Includes a variable-area dashpot damper, using non-toxic, stable-viscosity fluid – for a range of damping coefficients
  • Works with TecQuipment’s VDAS® (mkII) for real-time display of the vibrations
