Soete bespoke test setup 8000kN

Our high capacity test setup allows testing on a variety of test pieces in static loading (round bar and flat strip tests, notched tensile tests, cross-weld tensile tests)


The tensile force is obtained through displacement-controlled hydraulic pistons. Specimens can be cooled and are extensively instrumented. Measured quantities include:

  • Tensile force (load cells)
  • Strains in separate sections of the specimen and global strain (LVDT’s)
  • Crack Mouth Opening Displacement CMOD (clip gauge)
