The sole purpose of an engineering laboratory is to provide engineering product development and problem solving services to industries by carrying out controlled condition experiments and engineering analysis. These controlled condition experiments are done using testing machines, computational mechanics tools and advanced engineering softwares. At AdvanSES we use state of the art testing equipments to conduct material testing on any kind of metals, polymers and composite materials. Our computational mechanics tools like Abaqus Finite element analysis software, our in-house machine shop aid us in this process.
Testing methodologies are primarily divided into two (2) categories depending upon the test rate; static and dynamic. AdvanSES has both static and dynamic testing capabilities. We are able to provide a full 360 degree view of any material or product’s mechanical characteristics. We can also strength, strain, fatigue, hardness, and lots more.
Our testing methods include the following:
1. ASTM D638 – Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Plastic
2. ASTM D882 – Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Thin Plastic Sheeting
