Rossendale Group is a specialist load testing company and provides testing procedures, facilities and certification for a wide range of structural tests of lifting and other load-bearing equipment. A recent unusual request was for the proof load test of the wing and bomb pylon structures on a ground-training model of a modern fighter jet. The test involved the individual and simultaneous loading of up to 24 load points and recording all loads, deflections and strains. For health and safety considerations, dead weights were not appropriate so a test system involving hydraulic rams, pumps and manifolds was designed. Implementation was effective, timely and safe, providing relevant and accurate test data.
