Millions and millions of load cycles give us a better idea about long-term wear and tear.
The limits of a structural component are rarely found through one single force application. Rather, how do they perform after long-term use? A component will lose strength over time as it takes repeated loads. As a result, CTLGroup also offers testing to help answer what will happen over time with dynamic loads. Bridge stay-cables get pulled on millions of times. Rail-car couples get pounded every second for an entire week. A building component takes repeated bursts of air to simulate high-wind environments. All of these tests help to answer the question: how will my product perform under the most realistic conditions? Get your answers with our advanced testing capabilities.
