Drop and impact tests

CTA has extensive experience in the field of impact testing of aeronautical components and new materials using projectiles made of different materials such as rubber, metal, gelatine and ice, different geometries (prisms, discs, spheres) and real components such as blades, birds and tyre fragments.

We also have a test bench for drops of large components from heights of over 15 m, monitoring the behaviour of the specimen at the moment of impact using high-speed cameras and DIC.
