Destructive Testing

destructive testing

Since our founding in 1967, we have established an excellent reputation with business, industry, and the legal profession for successfully uncovering facts in destructive testing.

Destructive testing is a test of the most severe operating conditions that results in the failure of the test specimen. The main purpose of destructive testing is to determine the actual limits of a specimen, detect design weaknesses, and allow establishment of appropriate design factors.

Tests are performed using tools, machines, fixtures, and process that produce irreversible damage to the specimens. ATS’ destructive testing capabilities include fatigue testing, bend testing, hardness testing, impact testing, load testing, mechanical testing, tensile testing, pressure testing, vacuum testing, compression testing, and destructive weld testing.
