Mechanical Properties

PMIC has over 17 years of experience providing mechanical properties testing for our clients. Some of the common test methods include:

Specimens can be measured in:

  • Tension
  • Compression
  • Bending
  • Shear

Properties can include:

  • Tensile Strength
  • Modulus of Elasticity
  • Strain Rate Sensitivity
  • Flexural Strength
  • Poisson’s Ratio
  • Compression Strength
  • Shear Modulus
  • Elastic Constants
  • Microyield Strength
  • Creep Rates
  • Low cycle fatigue
  • Creep Rupture

Micro-yield testing – Gives an excellent measure of prior microcracking. It uses minimal short-term stresses to determine the stress level needed to impart a permanent or plastic strain of one part per million (microstrain).

Elevated or Cryogenic TemperaturesPMIC has the ability to provide mechanical testing both at elevated and cryogenic temperatures. Testing has been conducted from -253°C (20K) to 300°C (473K). Measurements at higher temperatures are possible, contact PMIC for more details.
Materials include:

  • Plastics
  • Laminates
  • Sandwich Panels
  • Metals
  • Ceramics
  • Fabrics
  • Foams
  • Films

PMIC can perform a wide variety of ASTM, ISO, Sacma, Boeing and other test methods.
Common test methods include:

  • ASTM D5035
  • ASTM D638
  • ASTM D297
  • ASTM D3410
  • ASTM D3039
