Main Document

Tracker Compression Bending Experiment 

written by Alexandros Peteinarelis

This Tracker video analysis experiment collects data generated during axial compression bending tests conducted with an experimental test device, developed for the authors Msc thesis in TUC School of Architecture. The deflections, force values and the video analysis frames can be exported for further analysis and material properties calculations.

Experiment 1 tracks markers that represent the deflections of plywood fiberglass composite beams during axial compression bending tests.

Experiment 2 tracks the digital scale that is used as a force gauge in the axial compression bending test device.
