Material testing apparatus having separated load generating mechanisms

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6058784.

A material testing apparatus for applying selected force and moment loads to a test specimen includes a base assembly coupleable to the test specimen. The base assembly includes a support member and a first load generating mechanism adapted to apply a first load to the test specimen. A reaction structure reacts the first load applied to the test specimen. The reaction structure includes a reaction support joined to the support member. A moveable head is coupleable to the test specimen and is moveable relative to the reaction support. A second load generating mechanism is coupled to the moveable head and the reaction support. The second load generating mechanism is adapted to apply selected loads to the test specimen in at least two degrees of freedom.
