Product Testing and Materials Characterisation
For heavy road and rail vehicles, vibration and shock are a constant – and often costly – fact of life.To study these dynamics and manage their effects, NRC maintains one of North America's most versatile vehicle vibration testing facilities. NRC’s Climatic testing facility provides a single location to test performance under an exceptionally wide range of conditions When fleet operators, designers and modifiers need to know the static roll threshold of their tractor trailer, tanker, straight truck or military vehicle, they visit our Heavy vehicle tilt facilities.
