Fatigue Test Panel
Fatigue is one of the major reasons for the failure of the materials used in all engineering designs. It is important to know the fatigue properties of most of the materials before using them for the actual application. These are used by the research institutes, Auto industries, and materials manufacturers. This is a rotating beam type machine where the load is applied in a reversed bending manner. Standard 8mm dia. The specimen is held in special holders at its ends and loaded such that it experiences a uniform bending moment. The specimen is rotated at 2800 RPM by a motor. A complete cycle of reversed stress in all fibers of the specimen is produced during each revolution. The bending moment is applied through a lever system and can easily be changed by moving a weight over a lever. Light weight, compact size, simple design. Table model. No need for a foundation.
Simple lever systems for changing load.
