Materials Testing Lab

The Materials Testing Laboratory features a servo-hydraulic testing system, where a wide variety of tests can be performed ranging from simple tension/compression tests, to fracture mechanics, mechanical fatigue, and high rate testing. The system includes a console with controlling software, which allows the tests to be programmed and controlled, and the data to be acquired and processed. This Lab also includes a Brinell test machine to measure the hardness of metals.
