Energy Dissipation Testing


APV Tech Centre can provide energy dissipation tests services to meet industry requirements in Australia and Worldwide. We can test to standards AS/NZ 4034.1, ADR 3/03, ECE R17/03, FMVSS 202A and different specifications across a variety of industries such as consumer products, aerospace and military.

Energy dissipation testing can aid designers by testing failure modes and overall strength of their product. This allows designers to demonstrate that they have taken all reasonable precautions and due care in the design and development of their product.

The test involves impacting the test object at unfavourable positions with a head form pendulum, and assessing, from the acceleration measurement on the pendulum that the deceleration rate is acceptable and that no dangerous edges occur and remain after the test.
