Magnetic Tape and Servo-Hydraulics Applied to Truck Frame Testing 640119

This paper discusses the possible impact of the FM tape recorder and servo-hydraulic actuators on the testing of automotive structures.
The use of tape recorders and automatic data reduction systems will permit more accurate definition of service conditions and properly “set-the-stage” for laboratory testing.
Servo-hydraulic strokers should encourage better laboratory simulation because of their great flexibility. Test set-up time is reduced, fixtures can be simplified and load control is more precise. Simultaneous multiple inputs can be controlled as to amplitude and phase relationships.
