Load testing

  1. Apr 6, 2013 #1
    hi i am putting together a practical training for the infrastructure industry in the rebuild of earthquake torn christchurch nz, the training is around slinging lifting rigging
    i would like to make it as hands on and practical possible

    i have attached a diagram commonly used in explaining why slings at attached at an obtuse angle are under more pressure/force than at a acute angle

    i want to build a small scale model to explain this and to show that the weight and pressure are increased

    other things i am looking to try explane on the practical course are around how shock loading a load puts huge forces onto the chains well above the weight that is actually being lifted

    any help would be greatly appresiated
