Tribological & Dynamic Testing Lab

Equiped with the latest mechanical testing systems for multipurpose wear, dynamic (impact) & fatigue testing, with capabilities to perform high temperature testing and testing in application-relevant environments, and at different scales, including nanoscratch and nanoimpact and ballistic testing:

  • Multiple tribometers.
  • Profilometer for characterization of wear marks.
  • Hydraulic axial/torsional dynamic testing machine.
  • Nanoscale mechanical testing platform for nanoscratch and nanoimpact.
  • Custom experimental setup for ballistic testing.
