Mini-Mechanical Testing (Tensile, bending, compression on 10cm scale samples)

Location: Laboratory 108
Responsible: João Canejo

The Minimat Mini-Mechanical Testing is a tensile machine. This equipment allows the mechanical characterization of samples during mechanical testing. The samples can be subject to tensile, compression or bending tests and parameters, such as Young Modulus or Yield strength, can be determined from the stress-strain curve obtained during the experiments.
