Fatigue and Durability Testing


Fatigue and Durability Testing

This webinar describes the laboratory tests commonly used to determine the fatigue life of materials and structures for lightweight construction of vehicles, machinery and components.  This includes long-term dynamic fatigue tests, static load tests and model verification tests.  Live demonstrations will illustrate how these tests can easily be set up and run, and how test data can be recorded and analyzed efficiently.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • save time during the configuration of DAQ systems for durability tests
  • efficiently reduce the volume of recorded data in long-term tests

This webinar was originally presented on June 7, 2016.
