Chassis dynamometer applications have been represented in a large portion of our projects. As the approval testing requirements have increased along with multi-axle vehicle instrumentation, many of our customers have upgraded from 2WD or installed new 4WD or AWD systems. Our projects have ranged from design, construction, and installation of a larger dynamometer pit and electrical infrastructure to turnkey design, engineering, integration, and commissioning of new test facilities that include several new chassis dynamometer systems. We have evolved our expertise to a superior level in delivering these applications including all the related systems involved and the facility infrastructure.
Our Project Experience includes Chassis Dyno Applications for:
- Durability/range evaluation
- Mileage accumulation
- Powertrain – 2WD/4WD/AWD
- Thermal dynamics
- Wind tunnels
Climatic Vehicle Test Chambers
ACS has completed several turnkey climatic test chambers using our in-house mechanical, electrical and controls engineers. The projects included new construction design/build as well as retrofit work of existing test facilities. Our team has experience with design, equipment selection, installation, startup and commissioning of climatic test chambers.
In addition to purchasing, ACS has led the design / fabrication of wind simulation systems. Based on our customers’ requirements, our team researches, specifies, purchases, and manages the installation of road speed fans. We have also worked with our customers to design custom solutions based on the end user requirements. Our design work has included complete computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, fan specification, design and fabrication of nozzles and custom components, and as well as installation and commissioning of these systems.
