Fatigue Lab

Fatigue Lab The fatigue lab at TU is under the direction of Dr. Steven Tipton and houses modern servohydraulic testing systems.  Load frames from 5kN to 220kN (MTS) are available with modern instrumentation for the measurement of stress and strain.  Aside from extensometers, the laboratory also has the capability to perform 3-D digital image correlation (Correlated Solutions) for the full-field measurement of strains on complicated geometries.
