TEST STAND FOR STATIC STRENGTH TESTS OF RAIL VEHICLE BODIES

The basic unit of the test stand type ZDV 500 is a longitudinal direction variable horizontal frame, suited for rail vehicles up to a length of 30 m. With this frame, applications of horizontal tension or compression forces will be realized. Load portals permit forces on the end walls of test vehicles. For application of vertical loads at any point of the vehicle floor, single trestles are mounted on the foundation. With this stand, at which the forces are mainly hydraulically generated, strength investigations can be accomplished. Modern instruments enable the measurements and recordings of strains and deformations which will be evaluated by electronic data processing machines.
