Inspecting and testing bearings and components for bridges and high-rises is essential to increase the safety of bridge bearings and building bearings. Materials for bridge and high-rise bearings in short and long-term tests have to be tested on parameters such as stress, friction, wear and creep to demonstrate their usability. To create conditions relevant to the practical applications, FORM+TEST offers specially tailored solutions along the whole measuring chain.
Tensile, compression and bending tests each according to accessories. Strength test – fatigue strength under fluctuating stresses with centric initial load / compression rupture test / lateral resistance test for the load, displacement or deformation control – depending on the level of attachments – in the closed loop of the servo-hydraulic with a max. test frequency: 5 Hz on: Elastomer bearings, concrete cubes, concrete cylinders, plates
