Poisson's Ratio Testing With A Biaxial Extensometer

Poisson’s Ratio has proven to be a challenging calculation for obtaining both repeatable and accurate results. To improve repeatability, we typically recommend grips that provide consistent clamping pressure, such as pneumatic side acting grips.

Simulating a Spring with the ElectroPuls

As the number of patients seeking “in-home” medical care grows larger, medical device companies find themselves catering to an increasing demand for safer, more user-friendly biomedical solutions.

Upper Yield Calculations—Discontinuous Yielding/YPE Material

Following a recent lab visit, I thought it was worth writing a quick post to share an example of how labs sometimes incorrectly calculate yield strength. While visiting a testing lab for unrelated issues, my colleagues and I were discussing how the customer runs both continuous and discontinuous material with the same method (Non-YPE and YPE). For historical reasons, they have updated their Series IX methods to Bluehill 3 with little knowledge of why, when or by whom the methods were setup.

Industry Insights Series with David Fry

Working alongside our friends at AZOM, they developed a series of engaging interviews with a few of our global colleagues. In the recent series, I was able to discuss metals testing requirements with a focus on the latest European metals standard, ISO 6892 and high precision strain measurement with the AutoX750.

Instron at Alabama Composites Conference, Birmingham

Instron was at the Alabama Composites Conference (ACC) from June 19—20 in Birmingham, Alabama. Southeast Applications Engineer Jim Gleason and Kent Wallace, Dynamic Systems, were on site. ACC is held every two years at the University of Birmingham, Alabama (UAB) and focuses on latest innovations in the composites industry. Instron is proud to support such an event because it sees participation from a wide range of industry partners working with composite materials.

A New Long-Term Bypass Solution

Today, heart disease is so common that it’s a fair statement to make that you or someone you know has been affected by this illness. It’s estimated that more than 17 million people around the world lose their lives to heart disease every year, according to the World Health Organization. And in the US alone, more than 500,000 of those patients undergo bypass surgery. Most surgeons will “borrow” blood vessels from another part of the patient, such as the mammary artery or saphenous vein; another option is to use a prosthetic graft material. Tissue Engineering will soon provide the superior option, replacement parts made from the patient’s own cells.

Google for Test Results

There are many situations where we need to analyze test results, not just from one sample file, but results that are spread across different sample files that were tested at different times with slight differences in setup or calculations.
