Mechanical and Thermal Properties by Destructive Methods

Mechanical properties

Tensile, compression, bending tests (at different temperatures)

Modulus of Elasticity E, Shear G, Poisson's ratio, Yield strength Re, Strength Rm and Elongation at break (A%), Compressive strength

Vickers, Brinell hardness measurement

Thermal properties


Coefficient of thermal expansion of the ambient at 1000°C

Measurement of thermal properties:

Thermal conductivity λ (W.m-1.K-1), thermal capacity Cp (J / (kg.K))
