Project: Computer based control and measuring system for hydraulic actuators and servo-hydraulic testing machines

project duration
01-SEP-05 – 31-DEC-07
The Magnel Laboratory has a strong floor of about 950 m_. In the framework of fundamental and applied research, use is made of hydraulic jacks and servo-hydraulic testing machines with a capacity of 10.000 kN in compression and 2500 kN in tension. The project aims in the installation of modern computer based control and measuring units in replacement of outdated command units of the aforementioned loading equipment.
