The SE 200.27 bar set is used to extend trusses in SE 200.01. The bar set contains 12 smart, communication-enabled bars, equipped with electronic modules for data acquisition and measured value display. The experimental arrangement is set up in the SE 200 mounting frame. The stainless steel mounting frame provides direct and wireless data transmission and power supply for the smart components.
The bars are hinge-connected to node disks and are only subjected to compression or tension. The click system ensures the bars easily snap into place in the node disks.
In experiments, the forces are displayed both directly on the smart bars and in the GUNT software as a measured value and as a colour. The GUNT software identifies the position and location of the installed bars and the external forces and reacts dynamically to changes. The GUNT topology algorithm ensures that the visualisation in the software always corresponds to the real truss. The measured values are analysed in real time. The rods are clearly laid out and well protected in a storage system.
