The main types of tests and services

We carry out the full scope of standard mechanical tests, as well as corrosion tests and the strength calculations.

Static tests

  • Static tensile test, compression test, bending test, flattening and torsion tests
  • Shear strength test and cut test method
  • Determining of the crack resistance characteristics such as K1C / CTOD / J1C, Young’s modulus, shear modulus, Poisson’s ratio
  • Measurement of hardness and microhardness

Cyclic testing

  • Multi-cycle fatigue test
  • Low-cycle fatigue test with the stress control (the soft and hard loading)
  • Determining of the cyclic crack resistance characteristics

Dynamic tests

  • Determining of the impact strength characteristics
  • Impact fracture of the corner welded joints

Welded joints macro section

  • Hardness determination in the different weld zones
  • Macroscopic analysis

Metallographic studies of the materials structure

  • Macrostructure research
  • Microstructure research
  • Research of metal fractures
  • Fractographic analysis of the damage surface

Corrosion Testing *

  • Test for the sulphide and hydrogen cracking
  • Determination of the corrosion and contact corrosion resistance (GOST 9.908)
  • Test of the intercrystalline corrosion resistance (GOST 6032) and tests for the resistance to pitting corrosion (GOST 9.912-89)
  • ASTM G39 Test
  • Corrosion cracking test with the electrochemical method (OCT92-4395-86)

* – with the involvement of a third-party accredited structure
