General Description

The Unit for studying Forces in a Jib Crane, "MFPG", is designed to study the tensile and compressive forces in a planar central forcesystem based on the example of a crane jib.

The unit represents a planar central force system in which multiple forces act on a single point of application. It consists of an adjustablelength bar and a chain, which make the jib of the crane. This jib is attached to a vertical member (support bar) by adjustable clampelements.

A weight holder and a set of weights apply loads to the jib of the crane.

The force of the bars is measured with two spring balances installed on the adjustable length bar and the chain (elements that representthe jib).

Based on the example of a crane jib, forces are determined experimentally, theoretically and graphically: cable force, tensile force andcompressive force. The magnitudes and directions of the forces are graphically determined with a force parallelogram.

Exercises and guided practices

GUIDED PRACTICAL EXERCISES INCLUDED IN THE MANUAL

  1. Study of the force parallelogram.
  2. Graphical breakdown of forces by force parallelogram.
  3. Determination of the bar forces on various jib forms: cableforce, tensile force and compressive force.
  4. Comparison of results obtained in the practical exercises, thetheoretical values and the values obtained from the graphicalmethod with the force parallelogram.
  5. Comprehension of the action of the crane cable forces on thejib and the effect of the jib inclination.
