Multi-axis vibration and seismic testing

Multi-axis vibration and seismic testing

With two technically advanced facilities for experimental vibration testing, IABG helps manufacturers and system operators avoid failures with a method of experimental verification of stress-related designs.

In order to meet the high demands for quality, IABG is accredited in vibration testing and earthquake simulation in compliance with DIN EN ISO 17025.

Based on our accreditation we test in compliance with common standards such as IEEE344, IEEE693, IEC 60980, IEC 61373, IEC 60068-2-6 and many more, as well as according to customerspecific standards.

For over 30 years we have been qualifying components from the following sectors:

  • Nuclear power plants
  • Wind power
  • Medical technology
  • Railway vehicles
  • Automotive
  • Aeronautics

Our services

  • Experimental vibration testing with simultaneous multi-axle excitation in all six degrees of freedom (6DOF)
  • Stochastic and transient acceleration profiles are created based on required response spectra (RRS or PSD) according to the following specified test regulations, for example.
  • Real-time profiles (e.g. El Centro, San Fernando VERTEQII) are stored in the signal library of the process computer
