Tensile testing of metallic materials

A method to determining the mechanical properties such as e.g. yield strength, ultimate strength and elongation under static loading. The testing can be carried out using either flat or cylindrical test specimens that are in line with the relevant standard.

Purpose

The purpose of the test method is to characterize the mechanical performance of metallic materials, which enables to better understand whether the material of interest will withstand the external loads. Moreover, the obtained data can also be used to compare different alloys and/or to study the impact of varying the manufacturing process. In addition, the data can be used to identify parameters of constitutive models to be used in Finite Element Modelling (FEM).

Method

The testing is carried out in the lab according to the relevant standards. Flat or cylindrical test specimens are mounted in the testing machine and a load is applied while measuring the resulting strain. Various properties, such as tensile strength and ultimate strength, are obtained from the acquired data. When relevant, the testing can be carried out in an oven (from 300 °C up to 1200 °C) or in a climate chamber (from -100 °C up to +600 °C). Additional measurement techniques, such as Acoustic Emission (AE) and Digital Image Correlation (DIC), can be provided.

Deliveries

Written report in English or Swedish together with the acquired data.
