Destructive Testing

Reliance Hexham has the capability to perform NATA certified destructive testing up to loads of 150 Tonne.

Tests are carried out to the specimen's failure, in order to understand a specimen's structural performance or material behaviour under increasing loads. This also provides Engineering verification from theoretical failure loads to actual failure loads and furthermore the calculated modes of failure.

Items are placed under tension until the final point of failure. While this process is being carried out the computer software will log a live graph that is then printed in a report for evidence and future reference.

Types of graphs that can be produced include:

  • Force / Elongation
  • Force / Time
  • Stress / Strain
  • Stress / Time
  • Elongation / Time
  • Strain / Time
