Drop Tests and Stress Analyses

Special testing procedure for material and component combinations

Logo Drop Tests and Stress Analyses

Product description

BAM has a test rig for controlled drop tests including extensive instruments (sensors) that enable a wide range of dynamic, individually customisable tests such as crash, bending and compression tests. BAM performs such stress tests on material and component combinations as well as on material samples. The investigations include measurements of distance, speed and acceleration time sequences as well as strains and forces.
BAM supports project partners in developing their experimental methodologies, experimental implementation and subsequent evaluation and assessment of measured data. The test rig enables tests with a loading rate of up to 15.3 m/s and drop weight masses of up to 1,000 kg on an unyielding foundation. The design of the test rig allows testing of components with a width of up to 1600 mm and a length of 5000 mm. A pneumatically controlled arresting system can catch the drop mass after the impact so that a secondary impact causes no further damage to the object to be inspected.

Acoustic and Fibre Optic Sensors

Pipeline systems in industrial facilities usually carry large amounts of gases or liquids over long distances. Due to the high flow rates, even the smallest leaks can cause damage to the environment and people resulting in high repair costs.

Rapid Corrosion Test KorroPad

Stainless steel is covered by a protective chromium oxide layer, also called a passive layer. Due to errors in processing, the protective layer might not form everywhere on the surface, which could lead to local rust formation. BAM has developed a rapid colour indicator test to check the surface of stainless more

Safety of Transport Infrastructures

The BAM project "Safety of transport infrastructures" (SiVi) explores different scenarios for the emission of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in tunnels. At the BAM Technical Safety Test Site in Horstwalde near Berlin, BAM has set up a test facility with the dimensions of a tunnel structure which enables more
