Fatigue tests

Prolonged exposure to varying loads causes structural elements to fail at stresses well below the ad hoc strength of the material used, hence fatigue tests are conducted for objects subjected to time-varying load conditions. 

The tests make it possible to assess the behavior of a structure/structural element under both extreme loads and loads similar to those applied during operation.

Fatigue tests – testing capabilities

As part of our offer, we perform:

  • fatigue tests of complete structures and their components, 
  • high-cycle resonance fatigue tests, 
  • vibration resistance tests, 
  • analyses of natural frequencies of structure elements. 

We perform tests according to individual customer orders, including project preparation and construction of the test stand.
