Our portable Non-Destructive Toughness Tester (NDTT) generates a stress state nearly identical to the tip of an existing flaw. This unique characteristic will allow us to determine plane strain fracture toughness and ductile to brittle transition characteristics.
Leading academic faculty see this as a major breakthrough in material quality testing.
Traditional Fracture Toughness Testing:
Requires large specimens.
Proof of concept: Microscope image showing superficial tension-induced fracture surface generated by NDTT prototype.
Charpy V-Notch Impact Test:
Provides ductile-to-brittle transition temperature.
