NHCA Mechanical Testing and Analysis Case Studies
Snaps at 20 foot pounds or 19.8 foot pounds? That could mean the difference between in-field failure causing extensive downtime and added costs or success thru product design saving time and money. Knowing the mechanical properties of your materials, even though they may not be used in a potentially catastrophic situation, is important to understanding their capabilities. All polymers are engineered products and have definite properties. Knowing if a material meets or exceeds the application for which it was used will save you time, money and possibly litigation.
Please review a few examples of case studies utilizing various procedures, equipment and material property identifications.
What effects were UV, temperature and humidity going to play on a molded case in an outdoor application? Understanding the parameters of the polymer before committing extensive manufacturing runs saved time and money for the client.Read more...
