Measurement of material hardness by Vickers, Rockwell or Brinell tests
CINN's facilities include an Instron universal testing machine equipped with a high temperature furnace and also a microhardness tester.
Determination of flexural strength in structural components
Determination of mechanical properties by tensile and compression tests in different kind of materials: metallic, ceramic,polymers, concrete and mortar
Determination of ability of a material with defects to resist applied forces without fracturing, by measuring the absorbed energy before breaking. The material's toughness is evaluated by impact tests.
Study of the mechanical performance of materials working at high temperatures
