Structural test

Structural tests

The validity of the vehicle’s structural elements ability to absorb mechanical stress is obtained by making such components undergo fatigue tests, both static (strength and stiffness) and dynamic (fatigue and CAM DRUM).

EE structural laboratories are equipped with both bench types as well as the suitable measurement instruments to record local stress by means of strain gauges.


We provide detailed reports for each specific type of service.

Our strengths

Correlation with FEM analysis

Structural test is studied and executed to verify and experience the preliminary FEM analysis result.

High implementation speed

The bench is able to perform the test at high speed to drastically reduce the time required for the structural validation, compared to the test performed on the track.

Simultaneous tests

We are provided with two benched that can which can operate in parallel, performing additional tests on the same type of frame.

Other services:

Such service consists of the analysis of the behavior of the vehicle and the components’ life by simulating the road disconnections on Cam Drum bench.

It is performed to simulate road stresses by recording data through sensors that analyze the forces in the critical areas of components.

It is carried out to calibrate the engine and easy its integration into the vehicle. A roll bench equipped with a wide range of sensors allows such activity.

Validation of starting and first acceleration, at controlled temperature, in a variable range from -30 ° C to room temperature.

They are carried out to develop new engine configurations. The room, kept at controlled temperature, is equipped with an eddy currents engine bench.

They consist of measuring the exhaust emissions in order to make the vehicles conform to the main regulations in force.

They have the purpose of verifying the endurance and the reliability of the vehicle by simulating road routes or other via a robotic bench.

They consist of measuring the evaporative emissions in accordance with the most important regulations currently or soon in force.

They have the purpose of numerical simulations integrating into the process of project development to estimate and solve possible structural problems.

It consists of the detection of the vibrations induced by the engine that limit comfort and reduce the life of electronic and mechanical components.

They are made to measure the sound level and sound quality of the vehicle as per the Customer’s goals and within the limits of current legislation.

They play an essential role in the design choices and their validation. The results of road and track tests are analyzed by professionals.
