If you are investigating a new novel material, or if you require a material supplier for consistency, then let us help you do this. With a test laboratory & environment chambers for temperature-dependent testing, we can help you test & characterize you materials.
In addition to these services, with our advanced modelling capabilities, we can offer to fit your test data to constitutive material models for modelling purposes.
- Materials testing
- Tensile & Compressive testing (Stress-strain)
- Thermal tests
- Load to failure (yield, strain-hardening)
- Materials characterization
- Temperature dependence stress-strain
- Creep (primary, secondary & tertiary)
- Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Field Emission (FEG-SEM)
- Transition Electron Microscopy (TEM)
- Light Microscopy
- Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)
Constitutive Material Models Available
A list of some of the material models we’ve developed & characterised for our clients include:
- Soft-tissue (biological) material models
- Fung type strain energy Material models
- Related to strain energy density (SED), or principle strains or hydrostatic stress
- Hyper-elastic (rubber-like materials)
- Mooney-Rivilin & Ogden strain energy material models
- Super-elastic / Shape Memory
- von Mises
- Ramberg-Osgood functions for copper alloys
