static test

static test

[′stad·ik ′test]
(aerospace engineering)
In particular, a test of a rocket or other device in a stationary or hold-down position, either to verify structural design criteria, structural integrity, and the effects of limit loads, or to measure the thrust of a rocket engine.
(engineering)
A measurement taken under conditions where neither the stimulus nor the environmental conditions fluctuate.

static test

On windows and curtain walls:
1. A structural test, subjecting a test unit to a pressure differential equivalent to the maximum expected wind pressure.
2. A water test simulating the flow of water down over the test unit during a hurricane.

static test

A method of testing the structural integrity of an airplane structure (or any other structure or component) to test its ability to withstand loads it may encounter in flight. The loads on the aircraft may be simulated by sandbags or hydraulic cylinders. The structure is loaded until something breaks, thus identifying the weakest point of the structure.

Within the Commercial Airplanes business, the 777X static test airplane was completed and moved into test setup and the team's focus on execution across production programs.??
SpaceX confirmed the success of the test in a (https://twitter.com/SpaceX/status/992571214265765890) tweet  and noted the revamped booster looks "healthy." The company is targeting May 7 for the Block 5's first flight; however, the timeline is tentative and could change depending on the review of the data collected during the static test. According to the tweet from the company, the process will take a few days, following which the exact launch window will be confirmed.
The first set of beams was subjected to the static test up to failure, and the fatigue test at the low cycle was conducted on the second set of beams for the evaluation of the fatigue performance.
Static test used to find out the maximum load the orthosis could sustain [3-8].
In the numerical-experimental method of this paper, the linear part was identified by experimental eigenvalue matrices, eigenvector matrices, and others from experimental modal analysis, and the nonlinear part was identified by a nonlinear static test. The flowchart of the numerical-experimental method is shown in Figure 1.
The static test was developed to deform the overhead guard plastically in a slow controlled manner, so it would be easier to correlate the measured data to FE simulation.
They discuss what cloud computing is and available application services; the role and tasks of the test manager; risks related to performance, security, availability and continuity,functionality, maintainability, legislation and regulations, and suppliers and outsourcing; and dynamic and static test measures, including performing audits and checks, listing requirements and measures, doing reviews and inspections on documents, configuring and reading monitoring tools and logging, testing during selection, and testing performance, security, manageability, availability/continuity, functionality, migration, and production, and testing due to legislation and regulations.
