Test methods for the chemical analysis of metals and alloys are primarily intended as referee methods to test such materials for compliance with specific compositional specifications,
Testing shows a material to be suitable for its intended use by determining elasticity, tensile strength, elongation, hardness, fracture resistance, impact resistance, stress rupture, and fatigue limits.
Metallographic microstructure aids in determining if the material has been processed correctly and is a critical step for determining products reliability and for determining why a material failed.
Performed to determine the susceptibility of materials to corrosion under certain environmental conditions. testing can estimate life and determine if a material will meet application needs.
the field of mechanics
is concerned with the study of the propagation of cracks in materials. It uses methods of analytical solid mechanics
to calculate the driving force on a crack and those of and to characterize the material's resistance to fracture
Heat treatment specifications provide general guidelines, they do not address all critical aspects of a heat treatment practice. The use of material heat treatment procedure qualification can lead to the specific guidelines to ensure heat treatment success.
Non Destructive Testing
Non Destructive Testing does not permanently alter the article being inspected, Common methods include ultrasonic, liquid penetrant and magnetic-particle inspection. It is a useful and valuable technique in product evaluation, research and troubleshooting.
PMI / XRF Inspection
XRF Spectrometry is a powerful tool for PMI (Positive Material Identification) of metals and alloys. identifing unknowns by matching the composition found by the instrument in Analytical Mode to grade specifications in alloy libraries.
