Body Stiffness


  • determination of torsion and bending stiffness of body in white with and without hang-on parts
  • determination of stiffness courses

Technical Data

  • vehicle length max. 6 m
  • application of torsion moments of 1000 Nm, 2000 Nm and 3000 Nm in the strut towers of the body
  • measuring of the deflections with max. 60 gauges
  • decoupling of the supporting frame of the measuring devices from the body stiffness test bench
