Data acquisition systems provided by DEWESoft® are heavily used in performance, durability and reliability testing. This covers a broad range of testing applications: product, part and material testing; complete system testing for meeting its design goals; engineering, functional and environmental specification testing; lifetime span and tensile testing; load testing and many more.
Dewesoft X software includes highly sophisticated algorithms for online FFT analysis, order tracking, torsional and rotational vibrations, structural analysis, which makes analysis of the data much much easier.
The Road load data system provided by DEWESoft® is capable of recording the data during real test drives under extreme conditions and avoid reruns, which shortens the time of testing dramatically. The system is easy to install, configure and is ready in a matter of seconds after mounting.
The same units can also be used at test rigs either for a whole vehicle or certain component. Afterwards this data can be replayed with the same system on a test bed (like MTS) to simulate all the forces and vibrations in the laboratory boundaries.
Stress and strain analysis make it possible to determine the stresses and strains in materials and structures, which are subjected to forces or loads. Such tests are measured with many different sensors like for instance load cells, extensometers, strain gauges, ...
Therefore DEWESoft® has developed universal and extremely advanced hardware modules (SIRIUS, SIRIUS waterproof, KRYPTON and MINITAURs) for performing such a measurement. The combination of highly sophisticated analysis algorithms and ease of use in one software packet, makes DEWESoft® the perfect tool for such demanding performance tests.
Fatigue testing is crucial in material science, with which the weakening limit (fatigue life) of a material or object caused by repeatedly applied loads is recognised.
The output of such tests is S-N curve or Wöhler curve, which is a graph of a cyclic stress against the logarithmic scale of cycles to failure. The new DEWESoft® Fatigue analysis mathematical module can perform such a test and help engineers to do fatigue prediction and durability testing.
