Who we are...
FADI-AMT is focused on advanced mechanical testing of materials and components, using state-of-the-art material testing systems and sensors (particularly the use of digital image correlation [DIC] and other optical metrology techniques for non-contact motion & deformation tracking). We strive to enhancing the quality and amount of information that can be extracted from conventional tests, as well as stretching the limits of material testing by developing solutions to what is conventionally labeled as difficult or impossible!
While we perform some standardized qualification tests, our greatest focus is on modified and customized (sometimes completely out-of-the-box) testing approaches and solutions … Our main goal is to support R&D activities with high quality data that provide a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative account of material deformation and failure!
Very comprehensive suite of standard and specialized tests with DIC covering a wide array of engineering materials … focus on lightweight materials for the transportation sector, and advanced materials for the energy sector.
Testing of components, sub-systems and complete systems under different loading cases and testing environments, in support of research and development efforts (all with DIC & Optical Metrology).
We understand how our experimental data is used in fitting material models and feeding into finite element (FE) material cards, therefore the services we offer are tailored to supporting this purpose on different level.
We offer our equipment and expertise for in-house and on-site material/component testing activities that require integration with DIC and optical metrology.
