UNDERSTANDING THE EFFECT OF KNIFE EDGES ON THE SPECIMEN LIFE OF COMPLIANT MATERIALS



AVE2 Low Force Specimen Damage

  • Extensometer resonance could prevent you from testing at certain frequency ranges, introducing unwanted movement on the specimen, bringing your results in to question.

  • Extensometer knife edges can cause damage to your compliant material, shortening specimen life and influencing failure mode and location.

  • Mounting clip on extensometers to compliant specimens can be tricky and time consuming, with machine operators often wasting valuable time getting it right.

  • Traditional clip on extensometers may have limited travel, which reduces the flexibility of your cyclic testing when recording strain data from compliant specimens.
