Mechanical Test Lab

万博水晶宫水The Mechanical Test Lab has facilities for quasistaticload testing, cyclic fatigue testing, and a drop tower for impact testing. Also available are a variety of extensometers, load cells, and grips.

Vishay System 5000

万博水晶宫水The ME Department has two cart-mounted, PC based systems with signal conditioning and data acquisition for:

  • Strain gauges
  • Thermocouples
  • +/-10Vdc analog inputs

Each System 5000 chassis accepts 4 x 5-channel input cards for a total of 20 channels per chassis. Windows based software (Strain Smart) allows for easy, wizard-driven setup of test projects. Data can be exported in .xls format.

Instron test frames


E-mail Bill Kuykendall at billkuyk@uw.edu万博水晶宫水 to schedule an appointment on the Instron load frame, in MEB Room 127. to see when the equipment is booked. Scheduled classes have priority on this equipment, which means that there are limited appointments available on weekday afternoons during autumn and winter quarters.

万博水晶宫水If you need assistance with fixtures or other aspects of your setup, please contact the lab engineers at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. When deciding how much time your tests will take, please allow for adequate time to install and remove your fixtures.
