High-temperature solutions

Testing at temperatures up to 1000 degrees or above requires many new solutions. Here is list of some good products suitable at high temperatures: Heat-resistant thread ALF (Al2O3-SiO2) – can be used up to 1300-1400 degrees. It is good for attaching thermo couples as the mechanical properties are very good. Another benefit is that it is … Continue reading “High-temperature solutions”

Non-contact strain measurement using laser

To measure the strain when the specimen is isolated is something I have put a lot of thinking to. One common method is to put an extensometer on the specimen outside the furnace. This requires long test specimens, which is a limitation and not something we want. We want something that can measure a displacement … Continue reading “Non-contact strain measurement using laser”
