Detect and investigate single miniature plastic deformation
Large-scale tensile testing is commonly used to quantify materials’ elastic modulus, yield- , ultimate-, and fracture strength. However, while these tests provide valuable insights into the overall material properties, they average out the effects of each constituent, such as the different phases or interfaces.
To quantify the properties of a single phase or interface, miniature tensile testing can be used to quantify the mechanical properties of individual interfaces or phases within a material.
In addition, measurements on the microscale can be used to detect and investigate single plastic deformation mechanisms. Our expert mechanical testing team will perform miniature tensile testing using a FIB to produce a dog-bone-shaped sample of uniform cross-sections that stays attached to the original substrate. The tip’s griper shape allows it to interlock with the sample’s dog bone structure to conduct micro-tensile testing.
During tensile testing, linear elasticity is seen during the initial loading, yielding, plasticity, and fracture.
