Structures beam fixture uses structures system I-beams for investigations in tension, compression and bending.
- 2x Clamps
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Structures Beam Fixture allows any of the I-beams from PASCO’s Structures System to be stretched or compressed in the Materials Testing Machine.

Perform the following experiments and more with the Structures Beam Fixture.
Visit PASCO's Experiment Library to view more activities.
In this lab, Plaster of Paris cast beams are tested to destruction using compression. Quantities measured include Young's Modulus and the Compressive Strength for the material.
In this lab, three different lengths of plastic I-beams are tested under compression to investigate their method of failure. The way in which a member fails (buckling or not) is determined by its Slenderness Ratio, which is calculated...
In this lab, a Tensile Test is performed on plastic beams and Young's Modulus is measured. Students test beams with varying cross-sectional shapes to investigate the effect, if any, shape has on the outcome of the experiment.
