Advanced Structures Set - ME-6992B

ME6992B_MAIN.jpg

Overview

Build larger trusses, bridges, and other structures with this set as an addition to the PASCO Bridge Set. The included axles and pulleys also make it possible to build working cranes and other structures.

The Advanced Structures Set also includes flexible I-beams (to dramatically demonstrate failure) , flat members (for cross bracing) and drive wheels with rubber tires.  These new pieces are available separately as replacement parts or to upgrade older Advanced Structures Sets. 

As with all Structures Systems, Load Cells (sold separately) can be placed anywhere in the structure, allowing you to measure tension and compression forces at that point.

Load cells, a load cell amplifier and an interface are required to collect and analyze data using PASCO software.

Typical Applications

Made up of light weight, sturdy and easy to assemble I-beams students take structure building from an idea to reality in an incredibly short amount of time.  

Advanced Structures Set includes more components for endless possibilities:

  • Catapult
  • Rubber Band Car
  • Flexible I-beams

Key Features

  • Increases the capabilities of the ME-6991 Bridge Set
  • Build larger suspension bridges and cranes
  • Includes axles and pulley, flexible I-beams, flat members and drive wheels with rubber tires.

How It Works

Build larger bridges and as well as cranes, catapults and towers:

This set provides many more I-beams and necessary connections, making larger and more varied bridges possible. The set also also includes axles and pulleys for building and studying working cranes.

Add measurements to your system: 

Load Cells provide you the means to accurately measure tension and compression in real-time—anywhere in your structure! You build the Load Cell right into your structure where you want it—and easily relocate it without disassembling the entire structure.

Collect data on your choice of interfaces:

Load cells connect to a load cell amplifier which can then be connected to any current PASCO interface.
