The variable dynamic test bench (VPS) enables a wide range of structural component tests. Due to its modular design, diverse test setups with appropriate measurement systems can be realized. Quasistatic as well as cyclical loads can be applied, e.g., for strength or service life tests. As part of the multi-scale- test pyramid, component tests can reduce expenses and costs for full-scale tests.
