Determination of Flow Curves / Materials Testing
The focus of the material testing at the IBF is the destructive testing under tension, compression, bending and torsion. Besides the execution of standardized tests, the IBF also develops new testing methods and devices e.g. Hot-Gas-Bulgetest. Furthermore, technological tests like the cross die test or the in-house developed tribometer for the characterization of wear in aliminum extrusion are available.
Available Tests at IBF
- Tensile test with flat and round specimens
- Compression test
- Torsion test
- Cross die test
