Materials Characterization Primer SELECT TEST METHODS FOR MATERIALS TESTING AND CHARACTERIZATION For engineers and scientists who want to know if a certain testing technique or analytical method might be capable of providing answers to their materials properties questions, this special section describes some select techniques in simplified terms and emphasizes the most common applications and limitations of each method. Articles include a summary of general uses, applications, types of samples for testing, limitations of the method, typical time required for analysis, and capabilities of related techniques. The summary is designed to provide readers with a quick overview of the technique and to help them decide whether the technique might be applicable to their problem. Select tests included in this section are: Electron Probe X-Ray Microanalysis Tensile Testing Fatigue Testing Fracture Mechanics Multiaxial Testing Contact the sponsors of these pages if you are looking for testing equipment/instruments or more information about testing capabilities.
