Equipment at the RI

1. INSTRON 8802 &  8872.

Servo-hydraulic dynamic loading of materials by constant, increasing or changing forces, as a pulsing loading for compression, tension and bending.

 

2. INSTRON 9250HV Impact Machine. Impact loading of materials by gravity/spring loaded drop weight, with possibilities of adjustment of weight, energy and acceleration.

 

3. Zwick Z-100. The system is used for quasi-static loading of materials applying constant, increasing or changing forces, as a pulsing loading for compression, tension and bending.

 

4. USPC 3010 Ultrasonic Imaging System. A, B, C-scan – ultrasound identification of damage and delamination in composites

 

5. Polytec OFV-5000. Vibrations of the structures and components.

 

6. ISI-SYS Vibrograph system. Vibration measurements typically in combination with laboratory shakers in harmonic excitation modes using the forced normal mode excitation method.
