WaveMatrix Dynamic Software
WaveMatrix Dynamic Testing Software
WaveMatrix Dynamic Testing Software provides users the ability to define and run tests, and to acquire data for a wide range of dynamic and quasi-static applications. Tests can range from simple single-axis ramps and repetitive waveforms, to more complex multi-axis and multi-step tests.
Test methods are quickly and easily constructed using a series of steps within a matrix structure, allowing the user full control over waveform shape, control mode, data logging and test progress. Completely independent waveforms can be performed on each axis for systems with multiple axes of control. During the test method construction the user is presented with a clear graphical preview of how the test will run.
During the test a range of comprehensive data logging and data reduction tools enable the user to acquire the required data and at the same time minimise data file size through intelligent data reduction features. The user can configure the Live Test Workspace to show up to four real time graphs and add progress or status indicators.
Test results are automatically grouped together within a logical project structure allowing quick access to the data files and batch transfer of results. To aid results tracking a read-only copy of the test method is always stored with the test results.

Increase the throughput and consistency of your composites and polymers testing by optimizing the test frequency with the Specimen Self-Heating Control. This powerful add-on is specific for WaveMatrix™ Software. Composites and various other materials are prone to significant self-heating effects during cyclic loading, but their performance also shows strong temperature dependence. This has traditionally led to fatigue testing at very low frequencies to minimize specimen heating and the resultant degradation in mechanical properties. A test run for a single S/N dataset could mean weeks of machine time. Specimen Self-Heating Control can significantly reduce this, while providing previously unachievable confidence in test temperature. This patented system achieves and maintains a specified test temperature by varying test frequency in response to a specimen temperature input.
