Do you need
What we have
  • Your structure/component instrumented (also on-site) and to measure strains, extensions, forces, crack growth, deformation, temperature, (residual) stresses, stress distribution, etc.?
  • To calibrate your (force) sensors?
  • To embed or integrate optical fibre sensors?

The capability of performing experimental stress analysis by

  • Verifying numerical and analytical models and calculations
  • Measuring stress concentrations and stress intensity factors
  • Surveying a structure for potential problem sites
  • Performing design comparisons
  • Tracking damage in (composite) materials

Moreover we have the expertise to perform

  • Calibration of force transducers under RvA accreditation (ISO 17025)
  • Strain-calibration set-up for (airplane) structures
  • Instrumentation and performance measurements (also on-site)
  • High temperature (up to 1200 deg C) instrumentation (pyrometry, thermocouples) application
  • Embedding techniques for optical fibre sensors
  • (Wireless) Sensor technology application for Structural Health Monitoring
