The Laboratory of Experimental Mechanics offers SUSU scientists premier facilities and software for conducting groundbreaking research and bold experiments for a broad scope of industrial needs.

What we do:

  • Improve the quality of materials and reducing the design time by developing experimentally verified multifunctional computer modelling

Our services:

  • Analysis of mechanical properties of materials (including composite materials) under static and shock load

  • Development of complex models of dynamic systems verified by test results

  • Calculation of the dynamics and strength of structures by the finite element method

  • Analysis of fatigue properties of materials

  • Vibration testing under sinusoidal, random, and shock excitation

  • Experimental modal analysis

  • Non-contact vibration measurement

  • Non-contact stress and strain measurement

  • Multichannel thermal strain gauge measurement

  • Analysis of  in-vehicle and engine noise sources

  • Vehicle road testing
