Aircraft Interior Testing

As a strategic partner of the international aeronautics industry, IABG performs a wide range of testing and product qualification of individual assemblies and components. The high standards that technical products are held to regarding reliability, robustness, durability and compliance with statutory provisions require  sophisticated test procedures.


Range of Expertise

Our teams of experienced experts and our powerful, modern facilities can perform virtually any strength, fatigue and functional tests as well as environmental test for a wide range of applications. All test campaigns can also be supplemented by sophisticated computer simulations, e.g. FEM and CFD simulations, to gain additional insights into the testing behaviour of the specimens. All tests comply with national and international testing standards, e.g. RTCA / DO-160, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461.

Material Strength and Endurance

  • Fatigue tests
  • Static load tests
  • Other structural tests regarding:
    Aging characteristics — Corrosion — Wear


  • EMC qualification and engineering tests
  • Emission and susceptibility testing
  • Measurement of shielding attenuation
  • High intensity radiated fields (HIRF)
  • Indirect lightning with multiple burst & stroke
  • Simulation of mobile communication e.g. on GSM Frequencies
  • Power characteristics and simulation
  • Consulting and hardening

Vibration Tests

  • Vibration test (sinus, random noise and load simulations, transport simulations etc.)
  • Simulation of transient loads (e.g. windmilling tests): Fan Blade Out — Sustained Engine Imbalance

Climatic Tests
