Strain-life curve (LCF TEST) on spring material in Mumbai, India

TCR Engineering Services (, India's leading material testing and metallurgical services company now can undertake Strain-life curve (LCF TEST) on spring materials. Strain-life curve (LCF TEST) on spring material can be conducted if round samples are machined as per relevant ASTM Std. The  sample is axially loaded at frequencies in range 5-30 under sine/ramp loading. If the amplitude of the total strain is such that we have significant plasticity, the lifetime is likely to be short (Low Cycle Fatigue or LCF; strain life approach). If the stresses are low enough that the strains are elastic, the lifetime is likely to be long (High Cycle Fatigue or HCF; stress-life approach).

CTOD Testing in Mumbai, India at TCR Engineering Services

TCR Engineering Services, India's leading material testing and metallurgical services company routinely undertakes Crack Tip Opening Displacement (CTOD) Test. The Crack Tip Opening Displacement or CTOD Test measures the resistance of a material to the propagation of a crack. CTOD is used on materials that can show some plastic deformation before failure occurs causing the tip to stretch open. Accurate measurement of this displacement is one of the essentials of the test.

Single point CTOD at maximum load can be determined using SENB specimens upto a thickness of 25 mm on 250kN Servo hydraulic UTM of TCR Engineering test lab ( at Mumbai. The notch can be placed in target area and tested in chilled condition as per ASTM E1820 which is not different than ISO 15653-2010 which in turn is complementary to ISO 12135. Customers can specify the material and thickness for designing the specimens. Besides, the yield strength,UTS and modulus of the material has to be provided…
