CPAD™ with Computer, 17" LCD Monitor & Pre-loaded Software (Windows XP-7)
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(tm) refers to how far the structure bends at the given weight. For example, if you put 5 lb. of weight on a structure, one structure may bend 1" and another 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. Compatible with the KELVIN® Bridge/Tower Tester(tm) and interfaces with the computer. Grades 6 & up.
Features of the CPAD(tm) System include:
Also available without the computer package (see below).
