STRUCTURAL

Aries Ingeniería y Sistemas has the technology, expertise and flexibility to fulfill the most demanding industrial requirements and provide complete structural and seismic test laboratories to perform quasi-static, pseudo-dynamic and dynamic tests in order to fully understand the failure mechanisms and collapse process of structures and to satisfy the requirements of civil and structural regulations worldwide.

Application:

  • Structural testingØ  Equipment certification
  • Development of regulations
  • Pseudo-dynamic testingØ  Dynamic testing
  • Research and development
  • Quasi-static testing

Scope of Supply: 

  • Complete LaboratoriesAries is able to design and supply COMPLETE LABORATORIES for structural tests. From the conceptual design of the buildings containing the laboratory, the floor-plan required infrastructures, to the complete civil work design, paying special attention to the reaction mass for shake tables, strong floors and reaction walls, all according to customer needs and prepared for the most demanding performance requirements.
  • Shake TablesA SHAKE TABLE can provide the dynamic force necessary to replicate full-scale displacements, velocities and accelerations to different test articles and to simulate different real conditions such as earthquakes. Aries customizes a shake table systems meeting individual requirements as the specimen size, weight and dynamic motion.
  • Wind TunnelsAries introduces a new lineup of subsonic WIND TUNNELS that can be customized in open or closed circuit both for aerodynamic and atmospheric boundary layer applications. They are supplemented by our state-of-the –art control system and software suites.
