Access protocol

The access protocol shall be defined according to the case


The Structural reliability and mechatronics laboratory is a fully equipped laboratory: there is equipment from universal traction Machine (300 kN), a dynamic fatigue machine (150 kN), used for material characterization and a in house developed accelerated fatigue machine, a Digital Image correlation (DIC) system, a Hardwre in the loop simulator (HIL) for real time applications and a acoustic emission (AE) system. With this equipment it is possible to characterize most of the materials and test real prototypes. This information is used for feeding the necessary data to the theoretical simulation models and validates the results obtained.


With this laboratory, IK4-IKERLAN is covering the entire value chain of the Mechanical sector: starting from the material characterization, virtual simulation and control tuning, and final prototypes or in service products validation and testing.
Structural Health Monitoring and Condition Monitoring is also covered in the offer we can bring to our customers with the aforementioned equipment and customized solutions for each application.
