Thin Cylinder Apparatus- Engineering Lab Training Systems.
Technical Description The main component of this benchtop unit is a thin-walled metal cylinder. It is sealed on one side with a piston which can be repositioned with a hand wheel. This makes it possible to create either the dual-axis stress state of a sealed container or the single-axis stress state of a tube. The cylinder is filled with oil and is hermetically sealed and maintenance-free. The internal pressure is generated with a hand-activated hydraulic pump and displayed on an easy-to-read manometer. Five measuring tapes are attached around the perimeter at angles of 0°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 90° to the cylinder axis to measure the elongation. The unit is used in conjunction with the measuring amplifier .
