Mechanical Impact Resistance
Mechanical impact resistance is the quality of a component or system which allows it to resist failure when forces are applied suddenly. The suddenly applied forces of interest are typically those which potentially could occur within the normal use environment of the component or system. The fracture toughness of the individual component, as well as the assembled system of components, can play an important role in the overall success in resisting these impact and suddenly applied loads.
WHA has extensive experience in testing engineering components and systems under impact load conditions, and in interpreting forensic physical evidence associated with impact failure. WHA is ready to provide these services to assist in answering your specific needs in the area of mechanical impact resistance testing and forensic analysis.
