Internal Combustion Fatigue Testing


internal combustion simulation

High pressure gas pulses within the combustion chamber introduce high loads into the engine block, pistons and connecting rods. To accelerate the development process recorded cylinder pressure pulses can be reproduced in the laboratory using hydraulic pressure control.

our Solution

internal combustion simulation

Instron Hydropuls® pressure control units allow the simulation of alternating pressure loads within the combustion chamber. These dynamic pressure test systems can be used to evaluate the fatigue life of various components including the engine block, piston, gudgeon pin, connecting rod, cylinder head and gasket.
