Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg

At the Universität Erlangen a classic biaxial machine with four electromechanical drives generates a multi-axis stress state and evaluates it optically using DIC technology. Additional stress states are created by the respective specimen geometries.

Technische Universität Dresden

One of the main focuses of the Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology at TU Dresden is researching the failure mechanisms of fiber-reinforced composites. Aided by a computer tomography (CT) system, the group examines the formation of cracks under defined stress states at the institute. To help with this project, Zwick built a 250 kN machine with a 1,000-Nm torque motor large enough to accommodate a CT scanner.

University of Oxford

In Oxford, scientists are busy researching silk. In addition to understanding the fascinating mechanical properties of silk, these researchers are also interested in its production. A silkworm's cocoon is traditionally unraveled to collect the silk. To demonstrate an alternative option, Beth Mortimer's group selected the following approach.
