Shock & Impact Testing

Shock and Impact Testing
Shock and impact testing is used to confirm that structures are capable of withstanding extreme dynamic events which could occur in-service.

Many engineering companies require support to assess customer specifications/national or international standards and identify the optimum approach to adopt to confirm that their structure complies with the shock or impact requirements.

The services Eatec provides include:

  • Review of shock or impact standards/specifications
  • Configure tests, including fixture design where required
  • Advise and identify/recommend appropriate test houses to undertake the shock or impact tests
  • Specify and supply/install instrumentation
  • Liaise with test house and oversee testing
  • Measure the response of the structure to the shock or impact and post-process the test results
  • Liaise with the client’s customer regarding the shock or impact testing
