Simply Supported Beams
Given limited materials, build a beam that
will support a specific weight (200g of
lead)
Time to design & build the beam is limited
to 15 minutes
Exercise: Simply Supported Beams
Exercise: Simply Supported Beams
a) two sheets of newsprint
b) one adhesive backed file label or
equivalent piece of tape
c)
two plastic cups to use as beam
supports.
65 cm
Load
Additional design constraints:
1) the file label NOT attached to
cups;
2) weight must not touch the table;
and
3) one sheet = Superior Design of
the Year Award.
Note: 65 cm is from edge
of cup to edge of cup.
Post-Lab Discussion
What process did your team use to select
a design and build the beam?
How could it be improved?
How did the team ensure that everyone
participated?
What contributions did you make?
What, if anything, would you do differently
next time?
