  • Images

Feature

• Maximum Load Allowable to be applied on the Material: +850.00N to -850.00N

• Maximum Displacement Allowable to be applied on the Material: +10.00mm to -10.00mm

• Frequency Range: 0.0001Hz to 100Hz

• Temperature Range of Hot and Cold Chamber: -150°C to 350°C

• Suitable Material/Sample for Testing: Polymers, Rubber and Soft Materials

• Available Fixtures: Tension, Compression and Three-Point Bending

Dimensions for Sample Preparation:

a) Tension based test: Length-70.00mm, Width-22.34mm; Thickness-3.76mm

b) Compression based test: Thickness must be greater than 5.0mm (For Cylindrical Sample, the diameter must be less than or equal to 20.00mm)

c) Three-Point based test: Thickness must be greater than 10.0mm; Length – 100.00mm


Further, Sample dimension customization as per preferences/standards such as ASTM can be prepared by discussing with Faculty in charge Dr. Poornesh Kumar Koorata

Note: Additional Test Input Parameters shall be provided as per the selection of test along with the sample for either DMA, Fatigue and Creep test.
