Within the activity of the Laboratory for Vibration, Shock and Strength Testing the services of mechanical resistance testing of devices and equipment to vibration, shocks, bumps, and hydrostatic pressure are offered. In cooperation with the Calibration Laboratory the services of secondary calibration of vibration measuring instruments are also offered.


  • laboratory testing of mechanical resistance of prototype products to vibration, shocks, bumps, and hydrostatic pressure
  • numerical modelling and prediction of mechanical properties
  • optimisation of mechanical structure
  • secondary calibration of vibration measurement instruments
  • testing and monitoring of vibration and strength of full-scale structures
  • hydrodynamic measurements during sea trials


Calibration laboratory for acoustics and vibration

The Calibration Laboratory for Acoustics and Vibration offers services of calibration of transducers and acoustics and vibration measurement instruments by means of working standards traceable to primary (national) standards and SI measurement units. The Laboratory is accredited by the Croatian Register of Shipping.


Services of the Laboratory for Airborne Acoustics and Noise Protection:

  • acoustic measurements (measurement and evaluation of environmental noise, measurement and evaluation of the airborne sound and impact sound insulation, measurement and evaluation of noise in the working environment, measurement of noise on board ships)
  • calibration of acoustics measurement instruments (sound level meters, measurement microphones, acoustic calibrators)
  • analysis of noise sources using acoustic camera
  • prediction of noise levels in ship’s working and accommodation spaces
