Bespoke Mechanical Testing Services

TWI is a world leader in developing bespoke mechanical testing designs and methodologies to support consultancy and research projects.

We have the unique capability to combine mechanical and environmental test methods using our extensive range of state-of-the-art equipment and our expertise in materials science, allowing us to accurately recreate the kind of conditions components will be exposed to when in service.

We build custom mechanical testing facilities that can accommodate myriad combinations of component geometry, loading conditions, environmental conditions and failure parameters.

All tests carried out at TWI are conducted by experienced engineers, adept at working with different equipment types and drawing meaningful analyses from the generated data.

Bespoke mechanical tests have the potential to benefit a number of industries reliant on understanding material and mechanical properties. Much of our recent work in this area has been concerned with pressure equipment used by the oil and gas, power and petrochemical process sectors.

TWI can carry out a variety of mechanical tests, using testing measures which include tensile testing (tension testing), shear testing and a wide range of other bespoke and standard tests.

TWI Mechanical Testing Services Include:

  • High-pressure hydrogen testing facilities
  • Small, medium and large-scale testing in H2S (equipment design, build and operation for static and dynamic testing in sour and sweet conditions)
  • Testing facilities to supply NDT, mechanical and corrosion testing to international acceptance standards
  • Rapid decompression testing
  • Fluid compatibility testing
