Low Velocity Impact Damage Testing:
Glass and Carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials are widely used in automotive, and aerospace applications to make structures light-weight without losing on the stiffness and load carrying capability. Properties like high toughness, high Young’s modulus, low strains, and manufacturability for specific applications make these materials indispensable to modern industry. Most of these applications include high strain, low and high velocity impacts and it becomes imperative to study the behaviour of these materials under such conditions.
AdvanSES offers testing capabilities for testing as per ASTM D7136 (Drop Weight Impact), ASTM D256 (Izod Impact Test), ASTM D6110 (Charpy Impact Test) wherein the damage resistance of these materials and products can be studied. Low Velocity Impact Testing forms one of our core range of services for material and product testing.
