Planar tension testing: monotonic to max. stress/strain

A planar tensile test is performed at a specified strain rate.  Strain is measured using Digital Image Correlation (DIC).

Example Data

PT001 Plot

Temperature Options
This test can generally be performed at any temperature between -80ºC and 250ºC.

  • CT: Cryogenic temperatures (-80ºC to 20ºC)
  • RT: Room temperature (~ 20ºC)
  • HT: High temperatures (20ºC to 250ºC)

Strain Rates
Strain rates up to ~ 1/s are possible, depending on specimen geometry. 

Data Provided
Time, Engineering Strain, Engineering Stress

Specimen Requirements
Specimen must have a width-to-height ratio of 10:1.

Note that we request extra specimens to ensure a sufficient supply of specimens for valid testing.

Veryst can also assist in molding standard and non-standard test specimens.  Please contact us if you are interested in discussing this option.

Replicates Recommended
