Test specification according to standards. Design, planning, conduction, supervision, and documentation of tests for qualification of components, structures and systems, and characterization of mechanical properties.
Recreating environmental or process conditions enables us to assess how a model behaves under specified parameters, in order to qualify engineering and acceptance test production models. All these test phases are crucial for guaranteeing an item of equipment’s service continuity throughout its lifecycle.
We have conducted tests in the following laboratories:
Thermohydraulics laboratory - Bariloche Atomic Center - CNEA.
Materials Characterization Laboratory - Bariloche Atomic Center - CNEA.
Engineering laboratory - Balseiro Institute - Bariloche Atomic Center - CNEA.
Centro de Ensayos de Alta Tecnología (CEATSA).
Test specification, conduction and supervision of prototypes and test production models, submitted to mechanical environments such as quasi-static acceleration, vibration and shock:
Quasi-static, sine and random vibration tests in shaker.
Tap test and modal tests.
Endurance and drop-test.
Test specification, conduction and supervision of flow characterization in closed loop hydraulic circuits:
Pressure and flow rate.
Mixing and turbulence.
Characterization of wing profiles and structures in wind tunnel tests.
Lift and drag curves.
Tensile test: Characterization of modulus of elasticity, yielding strength, ultimate tensile strength.
Fatigue test: S-N curve, Paris law.
Jominy test: Hardenability of steels.
Charpy and Izod impact tests.
