Mechanical properties

Mechanical analysis (Nano to Micro/Macro)

The principal mechanical properties on materials can be measured by  bending, tensile or compression tests, hardness and toughness.


The mechanical tests available are:

  • Compressive and flexural tests in 3 and 4 point configuration
  • Tensile tests.
  • Indentation modulus, nano-hardness
  • Vickers, Knoop and Brinnel hardness

by means of equipment such as fracture parameters testing machines, microduremeters or nanoindentors
