Structrural Analysis and Testing

Besides the actual analysis and dimensioning of lightweight structures there is an ongoind development, construction and operation of specialized test rigs.

These activities are mostly conducted in the context of research-projects. A selected list of current projects is available in the menu.

Here at the PKT there are specialised test rigs like the Hexapod, our servohydraulic 6-Axes-Testrig which enables us to perform static as well as dynamic multiaxial analyses. Using the High-Pressure Test-Center the extrem environmental conditions of the deep-sea can be simulated. Additionally, there are multiple test-rigs to perform dynamic tests of mechanical parts and components.

Other test-rigs can be found in the section equipment.
