C05: Small Scale and In Situ Mechanical Testing

Belongs to:
TopicC: Characterization

Small-scale and in situ mechanical testing techniques are essential for characterizing and understanding the mechanical behavior of a wide variety of materials. There is a rapid development of innovative in situ and small-scale testing techniques, which allow further insights into the acting deformation processes and dominating deformation mechanisms.
This symposium will mainly focus on both the development of new advanced in situ testing techniques and the further application of these techniques to understand the mechanical behavior of materials. Of particular interest are combined experimental, and simulation approaches. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Testing and understanding of the deformation behavior of interfaces 
  • Monotonic and cyclic testing combined with interrupted monitoring 
  • Testing at elevated temperatures and under various environmental conditions
  • Fracture toughness testing
  • Correlation high-resolution microscopy analysis and in situ testing 
  • Evaluation of localized phenomena by use of digital image correlation, acoustic and thermal measurements or combined full-field measurements
