Fatigue tests; Polymer composite, Motor vehicle.


The paper presents the device of the fatigue tests in the complex load states. The measuring system can measure and record the temperature of the elements tested, the number of fatigue cycles, twisting and bending angles of the sample and its load. The device is used to test the fatigue strength of elements of the carrying structures of the vehicles and machines cophasally loaded with the bending and twisting moments.
