Earthquake Testing

Wyle-3S built an enormously forceful shock and vibration system to simulate liftoff stresses. Wyle-3S had extensive aerospace research experience and has been particularly successful in developing spinoff applications. In addition to earthquake testing, the company has adapted its shaking technology, originating from Apollo to simulation of dynamic transportation environments, in order to evaluate effects on such equipment as railway cars, rail or road- transported cargo and truck refrigeration units. A variation of this technology provides a non-destructive method of testing highway pavements.
