Determine material tension failure properties to develop the critical high strain rate failure criteria for structural and composite design applications. Our tension testing system addresses the unique complexities of characterizing materials in tension at high strain rates. Carefully machined collets, hardened grips and precision ground bars ensure impedance matching and maximum loading rates while gun drilled, concentric striker tubes provide uniform load profiles in a compact package. The entire system is configured to simplify data acquisition, including capabilities for Digital Image Correlation equipment and processing steps to acquire strain data.
