Looking for Ways to Keep Bent Test Specimens Securely Aligned?

Gripping bent specimens is challenging, but there are a few things you do. One, flatten the tabs with a small press prior to inserting into normal grip jaws meant for flat specimens. Two, use a combination of convex and concave grip jaws to eliminate the need to flatten the specimens. Three, use a set of dual side-acting grips that will basically flatten the ends when the grips are closed.

Concerned about Fatigue Specimens Overheating?

Fatigue testing of composite materials is becoming increasingly important as they find use in a wider range of critical structural applications with the expectation of long service life. It is now widely recognized that these materials do accumulate damage over long periods of cyclic loading, even if the failure mode and mechanisms are radically different to conventional metallic fatigue.
