Mechanical/Physical Testing

Facilities are available in the lab for testing wood, plywood, panel products, metals and alloys as per relevant BIS or ASTM specifications. We examine and evaluate such materials for strength and quality to ensure safety towards their end-use. From the array of tests available a selected few are given below--

  • Compression testing
  • Fatigue testing
  • Impact resistance
  • Load testing
  • Dimensional changes of wood caused by temperature and humidity as per IS: 4020
  • Fire resistance testing as per IS: 5509
  • Tension and torsion testing
