Matrix: Statics Fundamentals

SKU: FM1883 Category: Tag:


This kit enables students to study static forces, moments, levers, beams and more. This kit is supplied in storable trays and with a full, free curriculum workbook.

This set of equipment covers the needs of students studying forces, moments, beams and more. Students use the storable work panel (included) to construct a range of experiments, which allow you to study a full course in static engineering systems. A full 10-hour workbook is included free of charge in the Learning Centre for this kit.
