Adaptronica has in its laboratory a unique drop test stand aimed at performing crashworthiness tests and analyzing the resistance of various materials to impact loads. The stand enables performing free drop tests with possible horizontal movement of the platform on which the investigated item is dropped. Additionally, the drop test stand is equipped with a hydraulic ram e.g. to perform crumple tests.
The impact is due to the vertical movement of a trolley of adjustable mass and drop height, which allows for covering the whole range of impact energies. Depending upon the test type, the shape of the impacting element is properly selected. The investigated item may be mounted on the trolley (of vertical or horizontal movement) or on the base stationary plate.
The scheme of the drop test stand indicating major components is depicted below.
Examples of use of the drop test stand:
