Follow Up Testings

Material testing comprehends different testing methods to determine the material properties of samples or parts under mechanical, thermic or chemical conditions to which a part is subjected.

The material is thereby inspected concerning its purity, defectiveness and working stress capacity. Material testings can be subdivided into two main categories: destructive testing and non-destructive testing.

Destructive Testing

During the destructive testing of materials the parts are examined for chemical and physical characteristics and thereby destroyed or changed (at least on the surface). The substantial methods of the destructive testing are:

-> Hardness testing according to Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell
-> Tensile tests
-> Shear test
-> Compression test
-> Beam impact test
-> Bending test

Chemical and thermic
-> Crystallography/Metallography
-> Jominy test

Non-Destructive Testing

During the non-destructive testing of materials the quality of a work piece is tested without damaging it.

Classical non-destructive testing methods are:
- > Microscopy / Metallography
- > Acoustic emission analysis
- > X-ray analysis
- > ultrasonic testing
- > eddy current test
- > magnetic particle test
- > penetration test
- > visual check/visual examination
