Detailed Description

This investment constitutes the backbone of metallurgical research and represents underpinning testing capability.


Our research focuses on determining durability with regard to fatigue life and fatigue limit, for example for fatigue testing under tensile, compression, pulsating and alternating loads. We focus on the fracture behaviour of materials and how this changes in a range of ambient conditions including humidity, high temperature and cryogenics.

This suite includes: a quenching dilatometer, TA Instruments DIL805A/D/T; High-Temperature Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Netzsch Peagsus DSC; thermomechanical simulator, Gleeble 3800C with Hydrawedge; a range of test frames for tensile and fatigue testing complete with a modular set of environmental chambers to create a range of test environments.
