The paper refers on a polyvalent oil-hydraulic testbench, designed and realized in order to develop a wide and diversified range of static and dynamic tests on mechanical components and structural elements. The testbench is an experimental mechatronic unit, integrating mechanical equipment, electronic devices and elaboration and control systems, aided by virtual instrumentation. In order to describe the main features and potentialities of the proposed testbench, the paper refers on tests of specific mechanical devices (shock absorbers) and of samples of structural elements (glued junctions). The possible and potential applications of the proposed workbench are very wide and oriented to validation, experimental identification, advanced testing and diagnostics in mechanical field.
