Testing facilities and equipment

SIMLab's extensive experimental facilities are used in the testing of materials, components, and structural subsystems. A number of the special-purpose testing facilities are employed in the material characterization at elevated rates of strain and at different stress states. Other test rigs are used for impact testing of components and structures for validation of numerical models.
