Knowledge of the mechanical characteristics of both basic materials and materials exposed to extreme conditions is of the great significance. Mechanical testing laboratory performs measurements of micro and macro hardness, as well as compressive, tensile and flexural strength. All mentioned tests are carried out in static conditions. Mechanical strength tests can be performed at room and elevated temperatures (up to 500ºC), in a specialized chamber. Mechanical tests are not limited to the specimen shape and type of material. Processing and analyzing of the obtained results are performed by using specialized computer programs.
