Bienvenidos a nuestro nuevo Blog Comunidad Instron organizado por Instron. Es una recopilación de las más actuales, brillantes, y talentosas mentes que Instron tiene para ofrecer. El mundo de la ciencia de los materiales es tan vasto y abarca la más amplia gama de industrias, materiales, y los desafíos que ninguna persona posiblemente puede poseer todo el conocimiento necesario para ser un experto o para dominar la ciencia de los materiales. Se necesita un pequeño ejército que colaboren y comparten conocimientos técnicos, experiencias e ideas para presentar la información más precisa, relevante y actualizada a todos ustedes nuestros lectores.
Le invitamos a que nos digas quiénes, comparta sus historias y nos hable de sus experiencias. Únase a la Comunidad Instron.
Jeff Shaffer, Manager of Product Marketing and Management for the Instron® Industrial Products Group, talks with Advanced Materials & Processes (AM&P) about how critical understanding the basics of tensile testing is to ensure product quality of steel reinforcing bar, or rebar.

Gripping bent specimens is challenging, but there are a few things you do. One, flatten the tabs with a small press prior to inserting into normal grip jaws meant for flat specimens. Two, use a combination of convex and concave grip jaws to eliminate the need to flatten the specimens. Three, use a set of dual side-acting grips that will basically flatten the ends when the grips are closed.

Fatigue testing of composite materials is becoming increasingly important as they find use in a wider range of critical structural applications with the expectation of long service life. It is now widely recognized that these materials do accumulate damage over long periods of cyclic loading, even if the failure mode and mechanisms are radically different to conventional metallic fatigue.
