Validation Process

You can rely on WESTFALIA products – the perfect connection!

The reliability of decoupling elements is time and again inspected and proven by different in-house processes. Validation is carried out by simulation of real vehicle movements on hexapod and high-frequency shaker. Even under toughest conditions WESTFALIA prototypes and series parts give evidence of their reliability and fulfil three essential functions:

  • Compensation of installation tolerances
  • Decoupling of operational movements
  • Decoupling of vibrations

Validation process

Step 1

Road load data acquisition (RLDA)

Data acquisition of movements and frequencies on test tracks that simulate typical road conditions and surfaces.

Step 2

Data analysis

Analysis of data gained

Step 3

Determine load collective

Fatigue strength calculation

 

Step 4

Testing phase

Low-cycle fatigue test to simulate road load situation

High-cycle fatigue test to check frequency behaviour

Step 5
