Mechanical testing of lightweight structures

 

​​

​Our testing facilities are well-suited for variety of large-scale structural tests. Our expertise covers various materials and structure types including metallic structures, fibre-reinforced composites, sandwich structures, concrete and wooden structures. In addition we have an extensive experience of on-site load measurements.

Our testing facilities

VTT Expert Services Ltd´s test laboratory is fully equipped for large scale structures testing. The test laboratory has a 500 m² strong floor system with configurable framing and support system. The floor includes an anchorage-point grid with movable hydraulic cylinders and support frames for various test configurations.

Features of our test laboratory

  • Full scale, assembly, component and sub-component testing 
  • Servohydraulic loading cylinders from 1 kN up to 1000 kN for static or dynamic loading. Multiaxial loading is also possible 
  • Loading frames with a capacity up to 2000 kN (static tests) and 1000 kN (dynamic tests and fatigue) 
  • Versatile data acquisition systems for monitoring of load, displacement, strain, temperature etc. during the test 
  • Large 450 kN- 2000 kN universal servo-hydraulic test machines for component testing 
  • Extreme conditions applicable 
  • Field measurements 
  • Earth quake testing
