Mechanical Characterization

Mechanical Characterization

  • Evaluate the mechanical properties of various materials. Applying controlled forces to test specimens, measuring their response to determine properties such as strength, elasticity, ductility, and hardness subjecting a specimen to tension, compression, torsion, and bending.

Fatigue test of materials

  • Fatigue testing involves subjecting a material to repeated cyclic loading to simulate real-world operating conditions and evaluate its durability and performance under cyclic stress.
  • Measurement of parameters such as stress, strain, and number of cycles until failure, this testing system enables the determination of important fatigue properties like fatigue strength, endurance limit, fatigue life, and fatigue crack growth rate.
