Material testing

Material testing: Force and strain is measured during defined loads (tension, compression, torsion, bending). From these measures stress-strain curves are generated and material parameters like Young's modulus, Poisson's number or more complex values are determined. Depending of the test type different measurement systems are used:

RTSS-Videoextensometer. Examples:

Determination of Young's modulus E-Modul-Bestimmung
Long term test of a rubber specimen RTSS Videoextensometer
Fatigue test at 200Hz Oscillation Link to the application report
Digital image correlation. Examples:
Tensile test with large strain Hencky
Shear test shear000021
Crack propagation crack000042

Further applications are listed in the section Digital image correlation - deformation analysis.
