INATECH offers comprehensive facilities for engineering research into and development of sustainable technologies.
Characterization of monotonic and fatigue properties
Laboratory for materials testing and study of materials systems
Modern testing machines are used for disruptive material testing and characterization. They are of the type used in current research practices and state-of-the-art university education. They enable, for example, the exact calculation of material properties as of the local stability of joint connections. Monotonic isotherm tensile and pressure tests, cyclical tests (fatigue), quasi-static and cyclical bend tests are currently being carried out at ambient temperatures relevant to engineering applications.
Characterization of material properties for metals, polymers and composites as well as multi-metal or hybrid composite materials.
