Structure Crusher Information

Structures will be tested on a stand that features two metal plates; one will act as the base and the other in the role of the typical crusher board. The lower metal plate has a pressure gauge which registers the maximum force applied to the structure, by way of a digital screen. The upper plate is attached to a hydraulic piston that will apply downward force to team structures. The piston will apply force to the structure and when the structure breaks the pressure gauge will detect this change in force and stop, recording the maximum force applied, which will count as the structure’s weight held. See the video below for a demonstration.
