Aerospace and Defense Static and Fatigue Structural Testing

​Aircraft, space-launch vehicles, satellites, and missiles undergo extensive continuous fatigue testing to prove that they will survive the stresses of flight before deployment. Because structural test and mechanical engineering teams want to be confident that they will pass the months- or years-long tests, preliminary structural testing must gather enough information about possible failure points to improve the design before beginning fatigue test. Test requirements include:

  • Minimizing the risk of structure, equipment, and measurement failures during fatigue test

  • Gathering enough information about the structure from preliminary static testing before beginning fatigue test

  • Optimizing the structural design to withstand stress by connecting the test data to the design and subsequent test runs
