The multiaxial test bench is a versatile equipment to validate models and optimize large structures by subjecting them to complex mechanical loadings under environmental conditions close to the reality of operation.

It allows to carry out R & D works such as:

  • Static testing and fatigue of parts and structures
  • Testing composite and metal structures
  • Monitoring of material health in a controlled environment (Hygrometry and temperature)

It offers an offer adapted to industrial prospects:

  • Static and fatigue testing services
  • Development of materials, structures and assemblies
  • Translation of field data and development of customized tests
  • Development of metrology technologies for CND and SHM
  • Understanding Damage Mechanisms
  • Validation of models (rigidity, strength, lifetime …)

Example of MRE applications

The multiaxial test bench allows to reproduce the real conditions of use of parts or large structures. Thus, it can be used to perform static and fatigue tests on composite and metal parts and structures used in MRE:

  • Conduct a fine analysis of damage mechanisms
  • Feeding and resetting digital models under static or cyclic loading
  • Understand mechanisms of ruin and optimization of structures and assemblies
  • Evaluate health monitoring devices in real time.

These tests contribute to the response of industrial issues such as:

  • Structural relief (design assistance)
  • Reliability of structures
  • Functionalization of structures
  • Predictive Maintenance (SHM)
