Mechanical testing at high temperature – seminar at SwereaKimab

Last week, Taina Vuoristo at SwereaKimab arranged a seminar about mechanical testing at high temperature in Stockholm. I gave a talk and shared our way of testing and also got to listen to interesting presentations about other kinds of testing set-ups. Gunnar Leijon from SwereaKimab also works with testing in reactive environments and showed some … Continue reading “Mechanical testing at high temperature – seminar at SwereaKimab”

Termocouple handcraft

Measuring temperature on an isolated sample is quite difficult. One option was to use a pyrometer but it could be problematic to measure through the quartz glass tube in the chamber. The other option is to use thin thermocouples attached on the test specimen. One problem is to insert them through the chamber without resulting … Continue reading “Termocouple handcraft”
