Strain gauges measurement during exploitation – allows to evaluate durability parameters with regards to fatigue strength of construction body, bogies and chassis components
Validation of numerical model (static tests).
Vibroacoustic tests which allows to evaluate sources and emission of noise and vibration energy in vehicles with use of Transfer Path Analysis. This approach can solve the comfort problems,
Evaluation of effectiveness of vibration isolation ( in suspension systems, on mounting of traction motors).
Dynamic measurement during exploitation – the main aim of this test is evaluation of safety during driving,
Experimental and operational modal analysis ( identification of natural frequencies, damping factors and mode shapes) of cars, bogies and other train components.
Calculation of dynamic characteristics of train components.
Measurement of rail infrastructure
Evaluation of effectiveness of vibration isolation of railway,
Evaluation of load distribution during driving thru different part of track (curves, straight parts, crossovers)
Measurement of railway
Measurement of railway geometry with use of dedicated devices.
Video recording of different parts of suspension, wheel – rail connection, pantograph motion,
Recording of vehicle foreground during driving.
Diagnostic during exploitation
Structural condition monitoring base on measurement of temperature, vibration & displacement which can help to plan and optimize service works. This approach can help to avoid serious problems and accidents. This method can be successfully use for monitoring critical elements like: bearings, brakes, gears and motors.
Our laboratory offer different kinds of simulations e.g.: durability ( static and fatigue analysis), structural dynamic, aerodynamic and crash.
