Testing rigs, testing machines and measurement equipment

At the Amtliche Prüfstelle für Baustoffe several testing machines used for static testing and a climate chamber for artificial ageing of material samples are avaiable.

  • Dyna-Mess dynamic Universal Testing Machine (50 kN), 2012

  • "Zwick 1445" Precision Testing Machine (10 kN) with bending apparatus for shear tests

  • "Zwick 1485" Universal Testing Machine (250 kN), upgraded in 2010

  • "Form und Test" High Capacity Testing Machine (600 kN) with 3-point-measuring strain gauge

  • "Form und Test" High Capacity Testing Machine with 4000 kN

  • "Losenhausenwerk Düsseldorfer Maschinenbau AG UBP 500" High Capacity Testing Machine with 5000 kN

  • diverse smaller testing tools and measurement equipment

The Institut für Sandwichtechnik operates modern dynamic testing machines, high-end digital measurement technology with sensors for force, displacement and strain and a climate chamber, in which full size sandwich panels can be aged artificially at the Labor für Tragwerksbau.

Together with the Stahlbaulabor at Technische Universität Darmstadt, the institute runs a testing rig, to investigate the tightness of joints in constructions made of sandwich elements and to futher optimize the geometries of element joints. Jointlengths of up to 2 x 3 meters can be tested.
