Back to Catalogue

The Torsion of Circular Sections Kit (ES5) from TecQuipment is a versatile educational tool designed to demonstrate torsion in circular section specimens of various materials and lengths. It is part of a series of 18 kits specifically created for experiments in fundamental engineering science topics. This kit easily fits onto the work panel 9ES1) that is supplied separately. To ensure all components are present after us, this kit comes with a graphic list, and a hard-wearing storage tray with molded inserts to securely hold each part.

Learning Outcomes

Using this kit, learners will conduct various experiments in torsion using different circular section specimens and adjustable chucks. This kit allows learner to understand the relationship between specimen length and angle of twist. After using this kit learners will:

  • Understand the relationship between specimen length and angle of twist
  • Explore the effect of different materials on torsion (modulus of rigidity)
  • Analyze the influence of the “J” Value
