Column Test Fixture CT
There are three sets of fixtures. One set is for testing fixed end columns. Another set is for testing free end columns. The last set is for testing hinged end columns. The fixtures are sold in matching sets, yet they are interchangeable to allow for combination testing. The fixtures are used in compression mode in universal testing machines.  The use of these fixtures permits extraction of data from tests which show dramatically the benefits of designs using single configurations and their combinations. Specimens for  these fixtures are available.


EEECO extensometers and troptometers have certain accessories that enhance their use and expand their value by making them equivalent to other specific instruments. Toward this end the extensometers can have their fixed gage length changed by attaching an appropriate accessory, the same applies to the extensometers. In addition the extensometers can be adapted to various specimen configurations. Power supplies and readouts are available for those instruments that use differential transformers
