Special tests on railway equipment


Fastening system components (pads, USP, UBM, springs, …): static and dynamic stiffness, fatigue, creep tests, …

Whole fastening systems (discrete or continuous) : vertical stiffness (static and dynamic), effect of repeated loading (in one inclined direction or biaxial), freeze-thaw resistance, ultimate loading, …

Whole tracks (slab track, ballasted track, level crossing, …) : determination of the frequency response, fatigue tests, loading with a real-scale bogie

Since several years, the procedures of railway tests are more and more fixed by standards (ISO, EN, DIN, …). The requirements of many of them can be met by the laboratory.
