Determining the mechanical performance is a critical part for the materials manufacturing and development process. In many cases, these properties can support researchers or developers to know the materials better, find deeper reason and obtain the final product with higher quality. Mechanical analysis employs a variety of external physical forces such as vibration, tension, compression, bending and torsion, etc., to test the suitability or durability of the materials. It can be applied at any stage of the product, from raw materials to finished products, measuring mechanical characteristics such as elasticity, tensile strength, elongation, hardness, facture toughness, impact resistance, stress fracture, and the fatigue limit.
Alfa Chemistry has global testing abilities based on our comprehensive technical platforms, professional R&D team and high-quality of our results. We are able to offer you reliable solutions to determine mechanical properties depending on the need and the field of final applications.
When a product or a component fails during its intended application, it is important to understand the root cause of the problem. What's more, it is critical for researchers or developers to understand under what conditions components will suffer structural failure and deplete their functionality. Generally, there are three major reasons that cause a component to become dysfunctional:
Excessive deformation --- This type of failure can occur under loading conditions both of stable equilibrium and unstable equilibrium in forms of elastic deformation and inelastic deformation.
Fracture --- This type of failure is caused by cracking under the function of alternating stress or strain.
Wear --- Mechanical wear often occurs at contact interfaces of load-bearing components.
The scope of mechanical testing can range from characterization of material properties to certification of the integrity of final products and safety. Mechanical analysis always provides valuable information regarding the suitability and durability of a material for its practical application. In addition, mechanical analysis can also make your design process more efficient and cost-effective to some extent.
