Materials Laboratory

064 Ottensman Hall

This mechanical engineering facility contains equipment to conduct impact tests on materials with Charpy, Izod, or tensile impact fixtures. Hardness tests using Brinell, Rockwell, and Vickers instruments are available and heat treating/hardenability properties can be determined. Two modern stress/strain machines, an Instron and an MTS machine, serve to provide students with the ability to observe elastic and yield behavior of materials. A modern creep testing stand is also available.
