Small-scale tests are usually designed in such a way that the desired stress condition can be generated in the test body with only one test cylinder. The test body is a section of a supporting structure. Due to the simplicity of the test set-up, large series in which several test parameters are varied can also be carried out.
We carry out such test series either on the clamping field or on other testing machines. In small test series, the fatigue behaviour of special construction details can also be analysed experimentally with the help of cyclic loading.
