Shock and Vibration Testing in Australia
Shock, Vibration & Bump Testing
Compliance Engineerings accredited vibration testing facilities cater for a wide range of international standards for its customers within Australia. Electrodynamic shakers are utilised to simulate momentary shocks and long term shaking of components or assemblies, which is useful in determining the physical durability of a device and its expected life cycle.
Categories of Vibration Testing
Compliance Engineerings accredited vibration and shock testing services replicate some of the harsh environmental conditions that a product will encounter throughout its lifespan.
In Australia, these types of tests are normally performed in three axes in turn. Vibration phenomena can be applied at individual frequencies with ascending amplitude, or swept over a defined frequency range to identify weaknesses or resonant frequencies.
Vibration Testing Profiles: swept sine, random, sine on random, resonance search, fixed frequency
Shock Testing Profiles: half-sine, saw tooth, triangular, rectangular, trapezoidal
