Materials Characterization and Testing
In materials research and testing, the relationship between the structure and properties of materials is studied, often at the atomic or molecular level.
Biomaterials, ceramics, polymers, nanomaterials, thin films, and devices are areas of interest in this field. The knowledge gained is used to assess quality, reliability, and safety, and is often used to produce new materials with specific desired properties.
Metallurgy focuses on the structure and processing of metals and their alloys.
Applications of Materials Research Testing:
Materials science is used in the following:
- Failure analysis
- Forensic engineering
- Aerospace industries
- And more!
Range of Materials Research and Metallurgical Equipment
Additionally, there is a varied list of products and techniques:
Up-and-coming areas for Materials Research
Advances in materials research and metallurgy can result in new, life-changing technologies. One of the fastest-growing areas is computational materials science, a field that uses cutting-edge computer models to simulate material properties.
Additional breakthroughs include the discovery of a process to turn liquid cement into liquid metal, and “polymer opals,” whose color comes from their internal structure alone, not dyes, an interesting development for the textile industry.
