Dynamic testing of large sub-structures and components

This facility enables the dynamic testing of large sub-structures and components. It can be used to determine crash pulses, or to subject structures to pre-determined crash pulses.

The Sled Rig is VCA approved for ED Regulation R-80 and FIA approved for Formula One monocoque tests.

Test structures can either be mounted on the trolley or on the rigid barrier as desired.

Typical applications include:

  • Rail, Road and Racing Vehicle Structures and Components
  • Aircraft Structures and Components
  • Seat Structures and Anchorages
  • Engineering Structures for the Nuclear and Offshore
  • Full data acquisition is available together with the option of video and high-speed colour digital photography.
