Abstract : This document gives details of the design and operation of two recently developed load controlled electromechanical shaker systems. These systems have been designed to test materials including composites, alloys and pure metals with either three or four point bending loads. One system (Mk I) is designed for room temperature testing only and the other (Mk II) can also be used at elevated temperatures. The electronic control and drive circuits include new designs by the author, published designs modified by the author and circuits developed earlier at AMRL. The loading frame and ancillary hardware were designed and built at AMRL.
