Transportation Equipment Vibration Test

Simulate vibrations/shocks that transportation equipment undergoes during running, and detect the cause of damage

Vibration wave patterns in actual transportation

  • Rail: Vibrations that double-stack trains undergo on the USA’s transcontinental railroads
  • Trailer: Vibrations that trailers undergo on Japan’s metropolitan expressways

Standard vibration wave patterns

Wave Applicable for
JIS E 4031:1994 1 & 2 Railway rolling-stock parts – Shock and vibration tests
IEC61373 Category 1, Class A Railway rolling-stock parts – Shock and vibration tests


For a manufacturer of railway-car devices, we demonstrated, by simulating the vibrations generated in a moving car, that a device has sufficient strength to withstand car vibrations.
