Crash Test Laboratory
Frontal, side and rear crash tests are carried in our indoor full scale crash laboratory:
We have the last generation of equipment for dummies, instrumentation, video cameras, measurement systems.
We reconstruct all kinds of impact scenarios in our indoor lab (cars, motorcycles, bicycles, etc.)
We assess vehicles, restraint systems, and their components according to different international regulations and protocols.
We evaluate the impact behaviour of vehicles, restraint systems, and their components in accordance with the different international regulations and protocols.
Cidaut´s crash lab provides subsystem´s tests to develop vehicle´s components and structures
We have a wide range of moving barriers (140-1800kg) for impact testing and energy absorption characterisation (crash boxes, structures, front-ends, etc.).
Our Horizontal Crash Simulator with dynamic control brake enables us to reproduce frontal, side and rear collisions with excellent accuracy and repeatability.
We have our own tooling design and manufacturing department, this allows us ti face every testing request with the best lead time according to our clients’ needs.
We assess and optimize vehicle restraint systems and their components for the automotive, aeronautical and railway sectors
•Frontal sled testing. static yaw ± 18º
•Side Sled testing (SIS frame developed by Cidaut)
• Barrier 90º, 27º crabbed
• Pole: 90º, 75º
•Rear sled testing for whiplash assessment.
•Component inertial resistance.
•Dynamic car seat testing (ECE R16, ECE R17).
•Dynamic airplane seat testing (FAR 25.562).
•Dynamic train seat testing (AV/ST 9001).
We have a wide range of component-level test equipment designed to conduct standard component validation tests as well as non-standard tests to meet the correlation needs of the CAE model required during product development.
