AdvanSES offers biaxial tension testing of rubber, elastomers and polymeric thin films. Biaxial testing is important for hyperelastic and viscoelastic characterization of elastomers and polymers for Finite Element Analysis FEA Applications.
We carry out tests under the following biaxial tension deformation modes;
1) Single Stretch.
2) Multiple Cyclic Loading.
3) Single Stretch followed by Stress Relaxation Step.
Hyperelastic and Viscoelastic material characterization testing is carried out under the following deformation modes;
- Uniaxial Tension Testing
- Planar Shear Testing
- Volumetric Compression Testing
- Uniaxial Compression Testing
- Biaxial Tension Testing
AdvanSES offers a choice of different capacities of load cells for biaxial testing high and low hardness materials, non-contact measurements and capacity to mold material test samples.
Biaxial Tension Testing of Rubber is a key property for input into FEA softwares like Abaqus, Ansys, MSC Marc, LS-Dyna. Biaxial tensile testing is a non-traditional but highly accurate testing technique for mechanical characterization of soft and hard materials. Typical materials tested in biaxial tension are silicone and natural rubber elastomers, composites, polymeric thin films, and biological soft tissues.
