Блог

Добро пожаловать на наш новый блог Сообщества Instron. Это подборка свежайших, ярчайших, талантливейших статей, которые может предложить Instron. Мир науки о материалах так обширен и охватывает множество отраслей, материалов и задач, и ни один человек, скорее всего, не способен обладать всеми знаниями, чтобы считаться абсолютным экспертом в области науки о материалах. Потребуется небольшая армия, чтобы совместно работая за кулисами, обмениваясь опытом, техническими подробностями и идеями, представить вам - нашим читателям - наиболее точную, необходимую, достоверную и своевременную информацию.

Мы приглашаем вас рассказать о себе, поделиться своими историями и поговорить о вашем опыте. Присоединяйтесь к Сообществу Instron.

What is R-Value?

R-value (also known as “Plastic Strain Ratio”) is a measurement of the drawability of a sheet metal. Simply put, it measures the resistance of a material to thinning or thickening when put tension or compression. R-value is a very important material property to understand for materials that will be formed into various shapes in their end use. When testing in accordance to popular standards such as ISO 10113 or ASTM E517, R-value is required.

Grip it Right

Gripping a specimen correctly is important if you want to acquire accurate test data. To most test operators, this is second nature.

Predicting the Properties of Virtual Materials

Historically, the properties of any new material have had to be determined empirically. It can take many years to transition a material from discovery to a commercial product, which is too slow, given the range of urgent problems that advanced materials can help us solve.

Question from a Customer

Q. What is a “Virtual Measurement”?

A. Materials testing software uses two types of measurements to provide results or input for result calculations; physical measurements and virtual measurements.

Protecting Mobile Devices from Impact Damage

I find it difficult to walk down the street, or in the mall, without having to move out of the way to avoid bumping into someone who is looking down at their phone - either playing games, sending a message, or watching a video. And during seminars, I notice that more and more attendees are not only bringing their laptops and smartphones, but also have in their bags a touchpad. Technology is evolving and conveniently giving us the world at our fingertips ....

Creation of a New Generation of Testing Instruments: Part 2

Last week, we introduced a little bit of history into our blog by discussing the need to develop a testing instrument that could accurately test the new thermoplastic material of parachutes back in the 1940's .... Below, we finish the conversation by talking about the technology developed more than 50 years ago.

Creation of a New Generation of Testing Instruments

Not too long ago, Joe Amaral presented at the ASTM week on the creation of testing systems and how Instron came to be. Taking his generous synopsis, I've broken it down into 2 parts. We'd enjoy hearing from you and your first experience testing on a system.

Tennis and Composites – What’s the Connection?

Can you imagine playing tennis with a heavy wooden racquet? Well, back in the 14th century, when the first tennis racquets were used, this is exactly what players had to use. With a limited “sweet spot” and a heavier weight overall, these racquets were cumbersome to use
