Superimposed Tensile-Torsion Tests and Compression-Torsion Tests on Fiber Reinforced Composites

The Korea Carbon Industry Promotion Agency (Kcarbon) is a research institute in Korea and a leader in the development of technologies for the carbon industry.

The institute spends a lot of time and effort on research and development of new carbon composite materials, supporting the continuous improvement of products. As a result of these product improvements, material savings, weight optimization or higher material load capacities can be achieved.

There are no required test procedures specified for the institute’s research. Kcarbon is constantly developing new fiber composites, from which new standards are subsequently created for domestic and international markets.

Testing with ZwickRoell

With our materials testing machine, standard-compliant tensile and compression tests can be performed up to 250 kN. In addition, torsion tests up to 2000 Nm are possible. What makes the machine special, is its ability to perform superimposed tensile-torsion tests/compression-torsion tests. Here, the material to be tested can be loaded up to 250 kN and simultaneously twisted with a torsional moment of 2000 Nm. An additional benefit is that with the specially developed specimen grips, even pipe composites can be tested.
