Innovative Test Solutions conducts pre-cracking and fatigue crack growth tests on notched specimens to determine crack growth rates per ASTM standards.  

Through crack growth and fracture toughness testing services, a material’s resistance to stable crack extension under cyclic loading at room temperature or elevated temperature may be determined.  

ITS has the capability to measure crack-growth rates using the electrical potential difference method, which can determine the potential energy charge per unit.

What is Fracture Toughness?

Fracture toughness refers to the ability of a cracked material to resist fracturing completely.  

Specifically, fracture toughness testing characterizes the ability to resist a fracture in a neutral environment — one of the most essential properties for any material.  

The mechanical test method is used to understand and prevent cracks and fractures. It can also be used the determine the useful life of a material under varying conditions, including fatigue testing.
