Baylor's Materials Testing & Characterization Core (MTACC) provides equipment, computing resources, and expertise for analysis of a wide range of conventional and advanced materials. The core provides imaging, testing, manufacturing, and sample preparation and measurement.
Lamina Properties Testing
MTACC can test fiber reinforced polymers for constituent properties through digestion and burn off methods.
MTACC’S non destructive testing capabilities can accurately assess the geometries and properties of materials, parts, and systems without compromising the integrity of the item being tested.
Our labs and equipment can provide mechanical properties such as tensile, compression, and more.
Polymers / Thermal Testing
Through a variety of tests and the utilization of thermal analysis, we can determine the composition of polymers and composite materials.
MTACC’s impact testing equipment and experts can accurately assess impact properties and energies for a wide range of materials.
High Cycle Fatigue Testing
MTACC’s fatigue testing capabilities include high cycle fatigue at room temperature and elevated temperatures.
MTACC can environmentally condition samples prior to testing to wide range of temperatures and humidities for extended durations.
