Structural Qualification Facilities

The David Florida Laboratory (DFL) has structural qualification tools ranging from electrodynamic shakers to a static load test system. The electrodynamic shakers have force ratings of 178 kN (40 k lbf), 105 kN (23.6 k lbf), and 27 kN (6 k lbf) respectively. To complement and support classical vibration testing, the DFL can also perform modal testing on complex space hardware. Further, proof load testing can be achieved using a Static Load Facility incorporating a 12-channel Cyber Fatigue Master Digital Control System. We also have many specialized testing facilities as listed in the following links:
