Force Simulation and Vibration Test Equipment

Force and Vibration SimulatorIn the lab, WESTEST test equipment is able to reproduce a wide range of loads, forces, and vibrations that realistically simulate conditions that vehicles, equipment, and components will experience during their real-world operating situations.

WESTEST Field Simulation Equipment:

  • Provides an extremely flexible servo-controlled hydraulic actuation system supported by a 341 L/m (90 GPM) hydraulic power supply with multi-channel control capability
  • Offers a broad range of load-control options including monotonic for simple sinusoidal inputs for fatigue evaluations to RPC simulation for more representative evaluations
  • Can be configured to apply a variety of loading conditions from single-channel harmonic analysis to multi-channel dynamic representations under simultaneous loading conditions
  • Can be controlled using a variety of known inputs such as force, displacement or strain in addition to derived parameters such as energy
  • Is capable of producing inputs up to 100 Hz with resulting accelerations as high as 2 G, depending on the load

Actuator Equipment Consists of:

  • 2 – 11 kip actuators with 6-inch displacement
  • 2 – 22 kip actuators with 10-inch displacement
  • 2 – 35 kip actuators with 12-inch displacement
  • 2 – 80 kip actuators with 20-inch displacement
  • 1 – 145 kip actuator with 20-inch displacement
