Impact test (wheel with tyre)

The resilience test allows to evaluate the resistance of an alloy wheel subject to an impact load, reproducing a collision against an obstacle, for instance, the sidewalk. The impact of the falling body occurs on the edge of the rim. The instrument also evaluates the loss of pressure of the tyre consequent to the impact.
