In high-load phases, e. g., during launch and landing, turbulences as well as in-flight separation processes, the structure and the materials of space systems are stressed to their design limits.
In our comprehensively equipped test facilities we simulate various real mechanical loads within the areas of
In addition to that we determine the static and dynamic characteristics of structures by
- determining mass characteristics (MPM)
- using dynamic characterisation and modal test surveys (EMA, OMA)
- performing static structural tests
In the course of tailored test campaigns we provide to developers and technical designers test results for structure qualification and the validation of analytical models. The seek for and understanding of hidden structural weaknesses paths the way for further optimisation. This way we directly contribute the success of space programs, as well as to the advancement of methods.
