Fatigue Testing for Infrastructure and Construction Companies in India

Structural testing is an integral part of the modern construction industry, whether it be proving individual components or materials are fit for purpose or load testing novel or existing structures. Infrastructure, EPC Contractors and Building construction companies can send their Reinforcing bar couplers for extensive mechanical testing at TCR Engineering metallurgical testing laboratory in Mumbai, India ( to ascertain whether they meet requirements of the National / International standards. The reinforcing bar used in conjunction with couplers can be tested to determine their tensile strength, ductility, slip under static load and high cycle fatigue performance. Checks can also determine if the structure being built can withstand the additional requirements for elastic and elastic plastic fatigue performance in seismic (earth quake region).

CTOD Testing in Mumbai, India at TCR Engineering Metallurgical Services Laboratory

TCR we have state of the art servo hydraulic universal testing machines of 50 kN and 250 kN capacities for determining fracture toughness parameters like KIC, JIC, δc, KISCC and R-curve for homogeneous metallic materials  subjected to quasistatic loading on notched, fatigue pre-cracked specimens. We also conduct Interlaminar Shear Strength(ILSS), Interlaminar Fracture Toughness (GIC), Translaminar Fracture Toughness(KTL) on polymer laminate composites. All our tests are conducted as per ISO, BS, ASTM standards. We also conduct NACE TM0177 DCB Test that measures resistance of metallic materials to environmental assisted cracking, based on fracture  mechanics concepts besides NACE TM0284-2003 test for evaluating resistance of pipeline and pressure vessel plate steels to HIC in relatively short time in aqueous sulphide  corrosion.  our metallurgists can undertake the CTOD test as per ISO 12737 (formerly BS 7448-1) , ISO 15653 (formerly BS 7448-2) and ISO 12135:2002 (Metallic materials --…
