Fatigue Testing Dynamic Universal Testing Systems
Fatigue testing allows manufacturers and researchers to get a critical understanding of how a material or component will perform in real-world loading scenarios over the course of time. ADMET material testing systems will accurately and reliably perform dynamic fatigue tests on metals, plastics, textiles, adhesives, medical devices and other products and components. Accurately calculate peak load, elongation percentage, modulus of elongation, and yield to break at capacities up to 200kN. Fatigue testing equipment is often used to determine how a material will perform over time and repeated use.
Common fatigue testing definitions and keywords include:
- Fatigue strength at N cycles: The stress value for failure at N cycles as determined from a S-N curve, which is the diagram of stress (S) against the number of cycles (N) to failure.
- Fatigue life: The number of cycles that a test specimen could sustain before failure.
- Fracture toughness: The measurement of resistance to extension of a crack.
Below is a list of fatigue testing standards applicable to different industries:
