The instrumentation purchased under this contract is a Materials Testing System MTS Model 880 uniaxial testing machine. In general, the system is used to perform mechanical tests on aerospace structural materials under prescribed thermal conditions. Typical aerospace materials being tested include polymeric composites, metal-matrix composites, and nickel-based metals. These materials are utilized both in space structures and advanced military aircraft. The primary objective of the equipment is to provide experimental data necessary to characterize the thermomechanical material properties of the structural materials mentioned above.
