"G Systems developed each system using NI hardware and software components, which helped us shorten development cycles and maintain advanced functionality."

Static and fatigue test applications share many of the same demanding requirements. Test articles include full-scale structures, large components, and small composite material coupons. The aerospace industry features several examples of this such as an airplane aileron fatigue test or a full-scale airframe static test. An input stimulus can simulate the types of loads the test article may encounter and exceed expected behavior to reach breakpoint loads. These inputs are typically in the form of a slow changing force, but the systems require precise low-noise measurements to validate these complex designs.
Meeting these requirements in a cost-effective manner is even more challenging because test systems often require extensive initial engineering resources and development time in addition to customization work for each new structure under test. Discover how NI hardware and software can help meet and exceed your structural test requirements while helping you reduce development time and cost.
