Blog

Willkommen zu unserem neuen Instron Community Blog auf der Instron-Website. Hier finden Sie das gesammelte Wissen der besten, klügsten und talentiertesten Köpfe, die Instron zu bieten hat. Die Welt der Materialprüfung ist so groß und umfasst eine solche Vielzahl von Branchen, dass eine einzige Person niemals über das gesamte Wissen verfügen kann, um als ""der"" absolute Experte in der Materialprüftechnik zu gelten. Es bedarf einer kleinen Armee hinter den Kulissen, bestehend aus Menschen, die zusammenarbeiten, ihr Knowhow und ihre Erfahrungen und Ideen austauschen, um Ihnen, unseren Lesern, die präzisesten, relevantesten und aktuellsten Informationen zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Wir freuen uns, wenn Sie uns mitteilen wer Sie sind und über Ihre Tätigkeit und Ihre Erfahrungen berichten. Werden Sie Teil der Instron-Community!

Non-Contacting Strain Measurement Techniques in Fatigue Testing of Polymer Matrix Composites

This article presents a short investigation of the benefits of non-contact strain measurement for monitoring and control of fatigue tests on composites. Recent developments in measurement technology offer the means to effectively measure both axial and transverse strain, instantly, throughout cyclic and highly dynamic tests. Several test scenarios are examined which demonstrate potential benefits of current state-of-the-art video extensometry, for strain controlled fatigue tests on thermoplastic composites.
