Welcome to the Materials Testing Lab. Two courses meet in this lab: ME2340 Introduction to Materials Science and ME2355 Strength of Materials. This lab contains a JEOL JSM-6360 SEM and a Leica Optical Metallograph, both with image analysis capability. The lab also features a complete array of sample preparation equipment, including grinding and polishing stations, etching facilities, and a carbon coater. Mechanical testing equipment includes a Charpy impact tester, hardness testing, and an Instron testing frame. When lab classes are not meeting, the equipment is available for undergraduate and graduate research and independent projects. Contact one of our staff for access.
