Mechanical Testing

Mechanical Testing 

The characterisation of all classes of materials, components and materials systems can be carried out over a range of temperatures. Tests may be made on standard macro scale specimens, but increasingly miniaturised tests are being developed which can allow the testing of parts of manufactured components, where properties may vary with position.

Techniques and advice on non-destructive testing and structural health monitoring are also available.
