In-house Component Crash Test Bench
The LIA also has extensive testing options available, for example an in-house component crash test bench that can be used for crash performance analysis at speeds up to 25 m/s with an energy of 32 kJ.
The test bench can be used for deformation analysis of components, highly dynamic quick breaking load tests, highly dynamic cupping tests and more. Two high-speed cameras with recording frequency of up to 100 kHz can be used for analysis of test series.
To ensure effective evaluation and analysis of the crash process, the force response on the clamping plate or on the slide must be measured as well as the displacement curve of the slide and the impact speed of the slide. Every test bench is ultimately only as good as the measurement data acquisition systems it uses.
For this reason the LIA relies on the GEN5i (successor GEN7i) measurement data acquisition system from HBK to record and analyze their collected measurement data.
Benefits of the system include very high sampling rates, as well as a high level of data security and fast data processing in the integrated Perception software.
