This article presents a short investigation of the benefits of non-contact strain measurement for monitoring and control of fatigue tests on composites. Recent developments in measurement technology offer the means to effectively measure both axial and transverse strain, instantly, throughout cyclic and highly dynamic tests. Several test scenarios are examined which demonstrate potential benefits of current state-of-the-art video extensometry, for strain controlled fatigue tests on thermoplastic composites.

An Instron geotextile customer was conducting materials testing nearly around the clock. They were not able to keep up with demand and were building another plant to respond to the market. The company had a positive experience with their current Instron testing system and wanted to invest in another for the new plant, but with shorter test intervals.

With a wide range of applications varying from white goods, automotive, and aerospace applications, sheet metals are often high in strength relative to their cross section area. It’s important to note that formability and ductility is also crucial, for which the common testing requirements are similar across applications. Explore the challenges in sheet metal testing.
