Materials testing

Characterize mechanical and acoustic material properties.

Develop a sound understanding of advanced materials

A sound understanding of the advanced materials used in innovative products is essential for fast and responsive product development. Our range of materials testing solutions accurately characterize the mechanical and acoustic properties of new and innovative materials and components, which in turn feeds simulation models, allows comparison between different samples and helps to improve existing products.

Our mechanical materials testing solution uses digital image correlation (DIC) to precisely determine mechanical properties for any type of material, from concrete to polymers, from metals to composite. Our acoustic materials testing solution measures sound absorption and sound transmission loss with tube or our room-based testing. Accurate identification of properties of new and innovative materials increases the accuracy and reliability of simulation models based on quantified results and enables faster and more responsive development cycles.

How to identify acoustic material testing properties

This webinar explains how to efficiently characterize the acoustic properties of materials and components using acoustic material testing techniques such as the classical tube and room methods, but also alfa-cabin, intensity-based and in-situ methods.

Materials testing capabilities

Acoustic material testing

Use of new lightweight materials impacts acoustic levels. Accurately identifying the acoustic properties of materials and components, such as mufflers, doors and panels, helps maintain comfort levels and reduce noise, while keeping material costs under control. Measure sound absorption and sound transmission loss with our tube or our room-based acoustic material testing solutions and efficiently characterize your product.

Acoustic Material Testing

Mechanical testing of materials

Use digital image correlation (DIC) to precisely determine mechanical material properties for any type of material, from concrete to polymers, from metals to composite under load. Extract truly quantitative information on the strain field under load from experimental data. Our seamless integration of the Virtual Fields Method (VFM) identifies material properties from full-field deformation measurements much faster and much more accurately than any inverse model updating technique can do.
