Testing, Diagnostics, and Analysis

ES3 performs dynamic field testing as well as custom designed laboratory tests for verification and validation of new concepts and configurations. We use state-of-the-art instrumentation and data acquisition systems to capture actual dynamic phenomena data. Proper interpretation of a structure’s dynamic response is critical to ensure a system design will meet performance requirements. ES3 has staff with exceptional expertise in measuring, modeling, and understanding dynamic phenomena.
