Abstract
The quasi-static loads experienced by large spacecraft structures during launch are generally simulated by static loading for qualification purpose and often specific to a spacecraft. A number of important aspects related to the development of a generic static test facility that has been developed at our laboratory are discussed with illustration of test performed on a typical spacecraft structure.
