Materials elastic properties characterization

To improve Finite Element Modeling and Analyses.

We offer elastic moduli and damping characterization services at room and high temperatures by the Impulse Excitation Technique (ASTM-E1876). The elastic moduli comprise the Young’s modulus (E), shear modulus (G) and Poisson’s ratio (ν). The damping corresponds to the internal friction of the material.
