Today model testing is used extensively in hybrid and composite modelling, in which physical models work interactively or combined with numerical models and informatics systems. This provides customers with groundbreaking solutions. Accurate and up-to-date equipment are available in-house, and our equipment is tested by experts regularly. This is a particular advantage to our customers since the equipment are tested, they are available to clients at short notice.
