Application Reports on Test & Measurement
The AMZ racing team relies on comprehensive testing using HBM strain gauges and data acquisition systems during modeling and FEM simulation validation.
When a wave is hitting a seawall, extreme forces can occur. Spanish researchers developed a test rig to simulate these forces. Measurement technology from HBM provided reliable data during the tests.
Geotechnical centrifuges facilitate the modeling of complex processes in the soil. Reliable data acquisition is as important as the centrifuge itself. For this reason, engineers at Pretoria University trust HBM's QuantumX.
New materials in crash tests: institute for lightweight automotive construction relies on HBM's Genesis HighSpeed
The Institute for Lightweight Construction in Automobiles (LIA) at the University of Paderborn examines and develops lightweight construction concepts. For the data acquisition the LIA relies on GEN5i from HBM.
Engineers used a Genesis HighSpeed data recorder for better understanding the behavior of sand grains during explosions. This information gathered helps engineers better design body armors for soldiers.
To help keep costs of on-track railroad tests under control, you need a reliable data acquisition system. For a recent series of tests on a new truck trailer design, SPE of Highland, IN chose SoMat eDAQ from HBM.
Tests at ABB's High Power Laboratory in Ludvika (Sweden) involve subjecting products to extreme stresses. Advanced test and measuring equipment is used, such as the HBM Genesis HighSpeed measuring system.
Dutch Lessius Racing Team (LRT) is taking part in the Formula Student Competition. The target: The development of new and novel powertrain technologies that result in race cars with low carbon emissions.
The Concrete Laboratory at Aarhus University School of Engineering is expanding its facilities as student numbers increase. It therefore needed flexible and intelligent measurement equipment that could be configured easily.
Tests on electric motors present a new challenge when it comes to measurement. French testing company GreenMot has opted for HBM's innovative eDrive testing solution.
