FRESSCO - Searching the Link Between Fretting Tests and Shaker Tests for Cold Welding
Spacecraft subsystems contain a variety of engineering mechanisms that exhibit many surface contacts, which may be periodically closed up to several thousand times during ground testing and the operational life of the spacecraft. These contacts are usually designed to be static, but in reality they are often subjected to impact forces.
A main innovation step is the possibility to offer component testing under real launch conditions, which would avoid potential misinterpretations occurring in accelerated testing. This would represent a further step in the development of these components and enhance the reliability of validation.
