Assistance in the realization of centrifuge tests.
Cone Penetration Test, Vane Test, T-Bar Test or Pressuremeter Test have been miniaturized for centrifuge testing.
Installed in the centrifuge swinging basket, the E.S. allows 1D horizontal shaking, including sine signal or earthquake signal.
Installed in the centrifuge basket, the robot makes it possible to perform tests without stopping the centrifuge. It moves following the 3 cartesian axes and with a vertical axis rotation.
Several D.A.S. are available for recording both dynamics or quasi-statics data.
Several hydraulic, electric or piezo-electric actuators are available for centrifuge testing.
