Fatigue is a failure mechanism caused by repeated cyclic loading that leads to cumulative damage within a material and ultimately catastrophic failure. Between 80% to 90% of all mechanical service failures can be attributed to Fatigue, therefore it is critical to test and characterize the fatigue properties of materials and components. Fatigue failures occur when a material is loaded rep... Read more...

Sustainable Alternatives Gain Validation Through Materials Testing

The past few years have shown us that the world around us is finite and fragile. And we all play a part in its sustainability. There has been a push across several industries to develop inventive, forward-looking products and technologies, while maintaining a better balance with the environment for long-term... Read more...

An R&D lab is frequently testing textiles that typically break around 900 N. While this falls within the capacity of a 1 kN load cell, it is best to use a 2 kN cell for several reasons: a higher-capacity cell leaves room for future development of stronger materials and reduces the risk of overloading the 1 kN cell and damaging it. A general rule of thumb is to select a load cell wher... Read more...

The majority of composite wind turbine blades contain adhesive joints. If a composite joint is properly designed, the adhesive can play a very beneficial role as its compliance allows for dimensional mismatch, such as from thermal expansion, and reduces stress concentrations at locations where elastic modulus mismatch is present. For all blades, defects or cracking between composite plie... Read more...
