Damage analysis - from joint implants to aircraft fuselages


Minor damage at aircraft structures are no taboo in aviation. In fact, they are part of the comprehensive safety concept under the term damage tolerance. We investigate when, whereby and how fuselages, wing units, tail units or landing gears deform and damage occurs. With our structural and material tests, we have been supporting the development departments of international aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus for many years.

We also regularly carry out damage analyses for our customers in the fields of medical products, rail vehicles and construction products. Despite the most modern manufacturing processes, material failures and thus damage caused by and to products cannot be completely avoided. Our experienced materials engineers determine the cause of damage to machinery, equipment and components using materials analysis methods.
