Mechanical characterisation

For the mechanical characterisation of polymers and polymer composites, various experimental techniques and machines are used. Besides the classical methods - application of quasi-static loads - similar test set-ups can be employed on our servo-hydraulic test machines. This approach allows us to investigate the long term performance of materials. The available testing machines are equipped with various force sensors, displacement controls, as well as chambers to accurately control the testing environment. Investigations can be performed using standard specimens as well as sub-assemblies. Together with the mechanical workshop and other departments new testing concepts were developed for specialised applications.
