Materials Characterization - Tampere University of Technology

Materials Characterization

  • Characterization of microstructures and mechanical properties of all materials
  • Failure analysis, wear and corrosion research, nondestructive testing, modeling and simulation
  • Transmission and scanning electron microscopy with elemental analysis (EDS) and texture/phase identification (EBSD)
  • Mechanical testing at wide ranges of strain rate and  temperature
  • High speed photography up to 1,000,000 fps
  • Dynamic materials testing with Hopkinson Split Bar techniques
  • Extensive scientific collaboration and research exchange with foreing universities
