Fatigue, Fracture and Mechanical Characterization Laboratory

Fatigue, Fracture and Mechanical Characterization Laboratory

The Fatigue, Fracture and Mechanical Characterization Laboratory includes multiaxial, uniaxial and rotating bending machines with several environmental chambers. The Lab allows to characterize the fatigue and fracture behavior of different metallic materials spreading in a broad range of strategic topics related to the structural integrity of conventional and innovative materials.
