The purchase of the equipment is part of the Structures 2025 Strategic Equipment Grant funded by EPSRC (EP/R008787/1), which will be housed in the LSTL in N|I|L. LSTL comprises a 30 m x 15 m strong floor with an installed hydraulic ring main system capable of delivering 1000 litres/min of hydraulic power at 280 bar that is purposefully built for multi-axial testing of large components and structures. Moreover, the new LSTL has been purpose-built to enable advanced testing utilising data-rich imaging techniques over multiple length scales.

This procurement covers the purchase of two high speed cameras with a capability of 10,000 fps at 1 MPix for imaging tests on large structures. The high-speed cameras will be used to derive displacement and strain measurements through image post-processing procedures such as DIC, grid methods and point tracking.

The offered Solutions must be in line with the vision of both the N|I|L and the Structures 2025 project as described above.
