Critical design and performance requirements for servohydraulic actuators used for civil engineering test applications.
 
Why Any Actuator Won't Do For Civil Structural Testing
 
Civil structural testing requires large-scale mechanical test solutions capable of accommodating enormous test specimens while achieving precise control of immense applied loads. The fact that these loads can change constantly - due to the physical degradation of test specimens - places especially unique demands on the test actuators used for civil engineering applications.

MTS senior product manager Sterling Anderson discusses the servohydraulic actuator attributes required to address the precision, reliability and energy-efficiency requirements of civil structural testing.

Build certainty into your dynamic testing with MTS Force Transducers
 
Gaining meaningful materials test data requires precise measurement and control of the loads and motions being applied to test specimens. For dynamic testing of materials under load, displacement or strain control, this critical measurement function is best performed by highly accurate MTS Force Transducers (load cells) for servohydraulic systems.
