HTIG-Group (High Temperature Integrity)

Advanced high temperature testing

Thermo-mechanical fatigue, isothermal creep-fatigue, creep
- Uniaxial, instrumented-notched and fracture mechanics specimens
- Deformation, crack initiation, short and long crack growth

 

Material structure and high temperature damage condition characterisation

- Microstructural characterisation
- Comprehensive pre and post testing inspection
- Optical, electron microscopy (scanning, transmission)

 

Specialist analysis and modelling of high-temperature material property data

- Constructive equation modelling
- Advanced finite-element simulation
- Damage assessment (fatigue, creep, oxidation)

Defect-free' and defect assessment of high temperature components/structures

- Without and with finite element analysis
- For improved reliability, performance and efficiency
