Model Number: 96-SE2

Learning Topics

Amatrol’s Structural Engineering 2 Learning System, 96-SE2, adds to the 96-SE1 Structural Engineering 1 Learning System to teach statics, data acquisition, and bridge design analysis. The data acquisition system uses structural members equipped with stain gauges to measure the forces acting on a structure, constructed by the learners, and the system records these values to provide a clear picture of how the structure is reacting to the applied force. Through calculations and data acquisition analysis, intermediate structural engineering learners will analyze the forces in truss bridge designs.

The Intermediate Structural Engineering training includes a data acquisition system, bridge components fitted with strain gauges, a test fixture hardware package, and interactive multimedia student curriculum. The learning content covers topics such as bending stress and the moment of inertia, data acquisition, and truss bridge analysis.

The 96-SE2 Learning System includes 8 structural members equipped with strain gauges. Strain gauges are the most common sensors used to measure internal forces in structural elements. The strain gauge generates varied amounts of electrical resistance in proportion to the amount of strain in the structural element where the gauge is attached. Learners can determine how much internal force is being placed on the element by measuring the amount of change in electrical resistance.

Once learners are taught how strain gauges are used to determine forces, they will build several structures using these structural elements, apply a load to the structure, and use a data acquisition system to record data from all eight strain gauges. Once this data has been collected, learners will be taught how to evaluate the results.

Data Acquisition System Collects and Displays Data Graphically

The 96-SE2 uses industrial quality data acquisition software, which can be configured to display data graphically as well as numerically. Learners will configure the software to collect data from 1 to 8 premounted strain gauges. The strain gauges are prewired to connect to a signal conditioner unit that has 8 analog channels.

Interactive Multimedia is Key to Understanding Forces on a Structure

Statics is the area of mechanics that deal with forces that act on bodies at rest under equilibrium conditions. Amatrol’s multimedia presents this complex topic in an easy to understand method using animations, interactions, and 3D graphics. Learners see how forces cause reactions throughout a structure including rotational forces called moments as well as bending moments that occur when a structural element is fixed and not allowed to rotate. Learners will be walked through calculations to calculations to determine the forces acting on a structure using the Method of Joints and the Method of Sections.

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of the Structural Engineering 2 Student Reference Guide is included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfect-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training making it the perfect course takeaway.
