Material testing and sample preparation

Material testing and sample preparation

Material testing
Material testing involves investigating the behavior of material samples or finished components under mechanical, thermal or chemical stresses. MTU Aero Solutions offers both static and dynamic material testing procedures.

You can choose from the following material testing procedures:

  • Destructive material tests
  • Thermo-mechanical fatigue tests
  • Crack propagation and hardness tests
  • Procedures for testing low cycle fatigue (LCF) and high cycle fatigue (HCF)

 

Static material testing
MTU Aero Solutions covers a wide range of static material testing procedures.

We have the following equipment available:

  • 16 creep rupture testing and creep test machines (up to 1,150°C)
  • 1 tension test machine with strain measurement (up to breaking)
  • 1 thermal tension test machine (up to 1,150°C)
  • 3 hardness test machines

We offer the following static material testing procedures:

  • Tension testing
  • Thermal tension testing
  • Creep rupture testing and creep testing
  • Fracture toughness testing
  • Relaxation testing
  • Testing of adhesive tensile strength
  • Hardness testing

 

Dynamic material testing

MTU Aero Solutions covers a wide range of dynamic material testing procedures.

We have the following equipment available:

  • 14 test machines for low cycle fatigue (LCF) up to 1,100°C
  • 4 test machines for high cycle fatigue (HCF) up to 1,100°C
  • 2 test machines for thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF) up to 1,150°C
  • 1 test machine (two-axis) for fretting fatigue
  • 1 test machine for relaxation
  • 1 test machine for rotating bending tests
  • 1 test machine for heat bending tests
  • Special furnaces up to 1,300°C
