Optical Strain vs. Traditional Strain Gauging for spin testing
Trilion Quality System’s partner, Test Devices Inc., featured the ARAMIS technology in his latest blog post: Optical Strain Measurement Vs. Traditional Strain Gauging. Test Devices is a world leader in rotational testing systems and services, and they often use our Digital Image Correlation technology to measure strain on rotating parts in spin testing and can offer this testing capability to their customers. Trilion’s High-Speed Digital Image Correlation experts supports Test Devices in these test programs.
In traditional testing, strain gauges were typically used to measure localized strain on the surface of materials, but with rotating objects, strain gauges become difficult to install and connect to the data acquisition modules. Non-contact measurement techniques become extremely advantageous for spin testing measurements and provide a full field map of strain on the surface of the tested components. ARAMIS, from Trilion Quality Systems, is based on Digital Image Correlation technology. It is coupled with a proprietary method for capturing images with high velocity rotating samples.
Combined with advanced spin testing capabilities, Test Devices Inc. provides a unique testing resource for civil and military jet engine/propulsion system developers. The ARAMIS Digital Image Correlation technology for rotating component testing can accelerate the development of advanced materials and manufacturing capabilities across the Aerospace and Energy industries. It provides the most relevant data to reduce risks in currently active turbine engine development programs.
