Most engineering structures are affected by complex multi-axial stresses that arise from load inhomogeneity, geometry, and material. However, laboratory tests predominantly use different types of loading regimes, which include creep, static and fatigue tests, and simple specimens that are subjected to uniaxial stress states. Due to the difference between uniaxial test design data and the functional behavior of multi-axial stress components, much research work has been conducted to ensure an adequate understanding of this relationship.
Axial torsion systems
The best solution for tensile and torsion testing. BV systems are available in a wide range of loads, with torque capacities up to 200 Nm, the compact design requires minimal space and offers a high level of rigidity and alignment.
Multi-axis testing systems
Most engineering structures are affected by complex multi-axial stresses that arise from load inhomogeneity, geometry and material.
Planar cruciform systems
Biaxial, low-load testing machine with four high-resolution linear drives horizontally arranged for uniaxial and biaxial testing of natural and artificial elastic tissues
