Effect of Specimen Geometry on Tensile Testing Results

How do different specimen geometries affect tensile test results?

Stress-Life Fatigue Testing Basics

ADMET CEO and Chief Engineer Richard Gedney's article on fatigue testing applications was published on the Quality Magazine August 2017 issue. 

The article starts with brief descriptions of the four stages of metal fatigue:

Stage 1: Crack Initiation

Stage 2: : Slip Band or Stage 1 Crack Growth

Stage 3: Stage II Crack Growth

Stage 4: Ductile Failure 

How to upgrade an older Universal Testing Machine?

A Universal Testing Machine Retrofit is a system upgrade in which the capabilities and functionality of an outdated and/or broken universal testing machine are improved by pairing them with advanced indicators and replacement components. A system retrofit is commonly performed on but not limited to tensile testing systems, compression testing systems, torsion testing systems, and bend testing systems. Universal testing systems manufactured by Instron, Satec, MTS, Tinius Olsen, Baldwin, Forney, and others are all capable of being upgraded by ADMET’s retrofit service.

What kind of tensile testing grips is right for your samples and application?

Choosing the most appropriate tensile grips to effectively secure your samples is critical in getting accurate measurements of tensile properties such as tensile strength, peak load, elongation, tensile modulus, and yield.

Materials Testing- ADMET Blog

Materials Testing is that part of engineering design, development and research that relies on laboratory testing of one kind or another to answer questions. Testing is also required during manufacturing to ensure a material or product meets some predefined specification. A universal testing machine is used to measure the mechanical properties of materials intension, compression, bending or torsion. Common properties of interest include Offset Yield Strength, Young’s Modulus, Poisson's Ratio, Tensile and Compression Strength and Total Elongation.
