Stress analysis

Experimental stress analysis for reliably determining the stress level

It is also possible to prove strength using an experimental stress analysis, rather than laboratory or endurance tests. To do this, strain gauges are applied to several measurement points on the test object and connected to a suitable measuring amplifier. The component stress experienced during typical loads (e.g. while driving) can then be recorded and evaluated. Based on the measurement values that are obtained, it is possible to calculate the service life using a linear damage accumulation model.

Experimental stress analyses for approval or development tests are among our core areas of expertise. Feel free to get in touch and explain what you are looking for so that we can come up with a suitable offer for you.
