Our HBK World
Improving Products Through Deeper Knowledge
To avoid failures, rigorous test programs are required for vehicles to replicate real customer usage over a wide range of field applications and environments. Developers of vehicle platforms also need to reduce program costs and schedules which requires optimized, accelerated proving ground test schedules that accurately replicate realistic customer operations without subjecting the vehicle to unrealistic loading conditions.

Monitoring the safety of EDF infrastructure
The Passy hydroelectric plant, the most important power plant in the Haute-Savoie department of France, generates electricity using water held back by dams and glaciers. In late 2013, major civil engineering works were planned in the vicinity of a “penstock”, or pressure pipe, transporting water from a glacier, and it was necessary to ensure that these works would not have any impact on the solidity of the penstock or its attachments.

Product Sound Quality
The sound quality of a product plays a big part in how end users perceive the overall product quality. Some product noise is inevitable, but it can often be transformed into something less objectionable or even a pleasant sound, like the roar of an engine. However, sound quality perception is subjective.Read more.
Structural Health Monitoring:
New Technologies are on the Rise
Virtually every type of public infrastructure, including bridges, pipelines, tunnels, foundations, roadways, dams, etc., is subject to factors that can degrade it or lead to malfunctions. These structural problems can be the result of deterioration, improper construction methods, seismic activity, nearby construction work, etc. Read more.
NVH testing and support
Ensuring the acoustic and vibration performance of a vehicle is hugely challenging and requires expertise in a range of noise vibration harshness (NVH) performance domains. To achieve fast and efficient response, automotive OEMs sometimes choose to outsource the responsibility for NVH vehicle integration. Read more.
The Disstinct Project
HBM strain gauges and data acquisition equipment were used in a unique experiment performed in the Westermeerwind wind farm in the Netherlands to investigate the damping effect of the sea bed on the loads on wind turbines. Read more.
Efficient Predictive Maintenance for Operational efficiency
Using existing and historical data, mining operations and associated plant processes can be modeled with advanced
analysis software from Prenscia Solutions. Our extensive experience in both software systems and services enables us to
review and implement more efficient processes and more accurately predict operational and maintenance requirements. Read more.
Standardization of internal testing procedures is helpful in that it ensures that results are comparable over time and help ensure that lab resources are used optimally. To increase test efficiency, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems can be customized to support standardized sound and vibration testing. Read more.
