Stress corrosion craking (SCC) test in specific environment
Sample: KIC steel specimens.
Environment: corrosive solution with dissolved gases at pressure up to 12 bar.
Methodology: constant loading specimens, DCPD method for crack growth detection, temperature control.
Radial crushing test on rings
Sample: 160 mm diameter sintered metal ring.
Methodology: low rate load application up to the ring breakage.
Load test on steel profiles
Sample: 2 m length steel profile.
Methodology: load applied simulating the real stress conditions; displacement trasducers to detect deformation in specific positions.
Load tests on wafers
Sample: low thickness silicon wafer.
Methodology: very low rate displacement application up to the sample breakage; load and displacement trasducers.
Torque test on small screws
Sample: small diameter screw.
Methodology: low rate angular displacement application up to the sample breakage; torque trasducer.
