Mechanical testing or engineering testing reveals the properties of a material under dynamic or static force, designed to ensure that materials are suitable for their intended applications. It is performed to determine various mechanical properties of the materials such as strength, hardness, toughness, brittleness, ductility, etc.
The data collected during the testing and the final test results are very important and useful to the designers and production units and project management. We use many products in critical applications where a failure could be disastrous. We perform materials testing for a variety of reasons. Some basic reasons for material testing are
- Conformance of meeting standard requirements stipulated by material specifications and standards/codes
- Selecting appropriate materials and treatments for a particular application
- Evaluating product design or improvement specifications
- Verifying a production process
To avoid such disastrous situations, Governments and regulatory bodies set compliance requirements that need to be followed by the manufacturers. Hence, the manufacturer must adhere to these standards, which in general specify as test methods, procedures to prove the compliances.
Material Testing is an essential part of both design and manufacturing processes to ensure the safety, quality, statutory and environmental requirements. Material Testing plays a large role in failure analysis investigations to help identify defective products, sub-standard materials and ultimately, the cause of a failure. Materials testing helps to understand the quality of the product whether they meet the specific requirements or not.
