Abstract:

An automated axial-torsional materials testing system has been acquired under a DoD Equipment grant to expand the capabilities for research in environmentally assisted fracture and mechanical behavior of materials. The system is capable of applying or - 20,000 lb. axial force and 10,000 lb-in. torsion under computer control, and provides for online digital data acquisition. To supplement the DoD Grant, additional funds have been obtained to add a hydraulically operated axial-torsional specimen grip, slow-rate servovalve, and heating system for high-temperature testing. The entire system is expected to be in operation by June 1986.
