Structural Durability Solutions – Instron

Instron offers a variety of testing systems and rigs for static, quasi-static and dynamic loading of structures and components.

This includes:

Below there are Instron’s Structural Durability Solutions:

The Instron Axle Test System reproduces

  • Stresses experienced by the axle when in use
  • Drive torque and braking torque introduced to the axle
  • Steering displacement and torque
  • Optionally, corrosive and environmental effects

Axle test rigs are used to reproduce in a laboratory test the different loads applied to the axle elements when the vehicle is traveling over a variety of road surfaces. The test rig is capable of introducing into the axle longitudinal forces and side forces encountered during cornering maneuvers, vertical loads resulting from rough road surfaces, as well as braking, steering and camber moments. Instron can provide models for testing of car, van, truck and bus axles with 6 DOF (Degree of Freedom).

2. Component Test Systems

Component testing systems are application-optimized test equipment used in research and development as well as quality assurance of machines and components. Instron’s component testing systems are characterized by the highest quality and reliability, ensuring the highest productivity in daily use.

The following are examples of executed test stands for testing:

  • Trailer coupling – CARLOS TC
  • Exhaust system – ARTEL
  • Car chassis – FDFP
  • Wear of vehicle joints
  • Truck crankshafts in resonance mode
  • Truck frames
  • Truck cab
  • Engine block, cylinder and connecting rod
  • Screw connections and the hub bearing of wind power plants
  • Bogies of rail vehicles
  • Rail vehicles with AMME load sequences
  • and many more

3. Full Vehicle Test System

Modern full-vehicle test allow life-time detection of car body areas and are mainly stressed by horizontally introduced operating loads. This is not possible with conventional 4-cylinder road simulators, since only the vertical component of an inaccessible road section is simulated with these test stands, and thus a realistic body fatigue can only be determined to a limited extent. Loads caused by driving maneuvers, e.g. Longitudinal, braking and lateral forces can only be detected by a multi-test system test stand, such as full vehicle test rig.

In addition to durability analyzes of the body, chassis components such as, for example, engine mounts, exhaust systems, and entire assemblies. Instron offers comprehensive solutions with and without vehicle restraint, with long- or short-stroke introduction of lateral forces as well as the optional environmental simulation with regard to temperature humidity and sun loading.

4. Road Simulator

With over 200 installed systems, Instron has an outstanding competency in this field of application. Road simulators for cars, trucks, special vehicles and motorsport cars with and without environmental simulation have been successfully installed worldwide.

The Instron road simulators are successfully used in the following applications:

  • Durability Testing
  • Noise Vibration and Harshness Testing
  • Ride Comfort
  • End-of-Line quality control
  • Suspension setup for motorsport with downforce-simulation
