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.
