The Service Loading Fatigue and Structural Integrity division tests specimens to identify material properties, for which we work in accordance with various sets of regulations or our clients' requirements.

We assess and characterise materials in accordance with these regulations or on the basis of in-house experience. We test components and systems to determine their resilience. With the acquisition and execution of research projects, we develop the scientific knowledge and technical expertise of our division further.

We also analyse and assess mechanical engineering failure on behalf of industrial enterprises, courts of law and public prosecutors. We develop constitutive models, both for materials and for predicting product lifetimes. We convey our findings to the wider scientific and engineering community through publications and presentations.
