Test Your Bridge Project, Tower or Wood Beam Material Without Destruction
This system can be used to test your bridge project, tower or wood beam material for building your model bridge. The major advantage of this system is that you do not have to break the bridge or the structure in order to compare results. The bridge or the structure can be tested for their strengths by comparing their deflection.
Deflection with the CPAD™ refers to how far the structure bends at the given weight i.e. if you put 5 lbs. of weight on a structure, one structure may bend 1” and an other structure may bend more or less.
With the help of the computer we can differentiate between small differences in deflection which may not been seen by the eye. This system may be used in conjunction with your existing bridge tester and it interfaces to your computer.
Features of the CPAD™ System Include:
Windows XP-7, USB. Grades 6 and Up. School Use Only.
Also available with a computer package (see below).
