Along with our other mechanical testing services, Applied Technical Services offers fatigue crack growth testing. ATS can verify whether your materials and equipment meet applicable industry standards by testing them in our advanced testing laboratories. Additionally, among our fatigue testing services, we also offer crack tip opening displacement (CTOD) testing.
Taking a Closer Look at Fatigue Crack Growth
Common Factors Related to Fatigue Cracking:
To execute a fatigue crack growth test, our technicians initiate a starter fatigue crack in the material that resembles a natural crack. They then use a specialized fatigue testing machine to subject the material to a repeated loading and unloading force, measuring the fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR). Our lab has a wide range of testing capabilities, from common ASTM and SAE standards to fully custom specifications.
