21-22 August

Visit at Open Laboratory of Experimental Micro and NanoMechanics (OLEM), Block 4

Demonstration of the equipment and tests, available in OLEM:

  • Macromechanical testing with UMT-2 (CETR, USA). Stress-strain tests in different modes (e.g. tensile, twist, three-point bending, compression, etc.), creep and relaxation.
  • Micromechanical testing with UMT-2 (CETR, USA). Tribology: friction and wear, coefficient of friction. Microscratch. Microindentation.
  • Nanomechanical testing with UNMT (CETR, USA) and AFM. Nanoindentation with Berkovich indenter. Scanning with AFM of the nanoindentation imprint.
  • Nanostructure - Scanning of the surface with Atomic Force Microscopy.
  • 2D and 3D profiling of the surfaces. 3D topography for quantitative and qualitative determination of roughness of the surfaces. 2D and 3D scanning and topography of the profile of the imprint after scratch, friction and microindentation test.
  • Rheological and DMTA investigations with AR-G2 rheometer  (TA Instruments).

Selected experiments with samples provided by the partners from the Institute for Nuclear Problems - Belarus State University.
