Fatigue Testing Laboratory

Fatigue Testing Laboratory
Innerpage Title Banner

This laboratory is used for high and low-cycle fatigue testing of parent material and endurance testing of weldments under constant and variable amplitude loading. It also handles bespoke full-scale testing and fatigue crack growth rate testing of parent metal, weld metal and heat affected zone. Tests can be performed in air or in a seawater environment.

The tests carried out here allow the generation of S-N data, validation of fatigue performance, material crack growth rates for use in an Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) and provide designers and engineers with assurance of fatigue integrity.
