Axel Fatigue Test Bench

The axle fatigue test bench checks the conformity of railway axles subject to fatigue. Through different tests, it is possible to identify the full-scale fatigue limits of the axle material, according to the provisions of the reference standard, so as to define the inspection frequency for axles subject to rotary bending stress.

The following tests can be performed through this bench:

  • Constant-amplitude fatigue test on axle body;
  • Constant-amplitude fatigue test on axle coupling area;
  • Block variable-amplitude fatigue test on axle body;
  • Block variable-amplitude fatigue test on axle coupling area.
