Machine for characterising reinforcement fibres
This machine was designed within the laboratory (with the help of mechanical and electronic workshops) and uses compressed air to displace the crosspeice. Voltage feedback or external sensor feedback measurements are possible enabling us to carry out long term creep tests or stress relaxation tests. This machine is used notably for testing composite reinforced fibre bundles.
