Structural Testing

Analyze component and system level fatigue, strength and durability with specialized structural testing and analysis from SGS.

To verify the static strength or fatigue strength of a particular component, highly specialized testing is required to apply measured loads to the test sample. Our team of industry experts can test the design and manufacturing integrity of your product. We support a wide range of industries, performing structural testing services using servo-hydraulic actuators with and without environmental conditions.

Why choose SGS for your structural testing needs?

Our structural testing data can help you:

  • Determine component or system strength by performing structural testing to failure
  • Identify the relationship between the stress range and the number of times it can be applied before causing failure
  • Fulfil specific engineering requirements
  • Gain support for analytical engineering
  • Validate finite element analysis (FEA) or model predictions

Unrivalled experience from a leading structural testing provider

As the world’s leading testing, verification, inspection and certification company, we offer you extensive expertise and experience in structural testing.
