Dynamic testing is performed on a vast array of rubber articles including belts, biomedical components, bridge bearing pads, dynamic seals, engine mounts, exhaust hangers, shock mounts, tires, vibration isolators, etc. to determine their response to cyclic stress / dynamic load. ARDL provides dynamic testing for compression stress relaxation, fatigue, durability, failure mode analysis, thermal analysis, finite element analysis, friction and wear, pressure, speed, torque, force displacement and more.
ARDL has five servohydraulic load frames along with two Metravib electrodynamic testing machines that are capable of dynamic characterization of elastomeric parts as well as stroke and load control fatigue testing. In addition, three electrodynamic shaker tables can test loads up to 7,000 lbf and frequencies up to 2,000 Hz. ARDL’s engineers can also develop customized test setups to better suit your individual needs.
