Monotonic and Cyclic Material Testing

Materials tests are often classified as monotonic or cyclic. Both kinds of tests are used to characterize the mechanical properties of metals, composites and many other materials, as well as components made from these materials. Tension and compression are examples of monotonic tests. In these tests, an increasing load (positive or negative) is applied to the specimen to identify its yield strength, ultimate strength and other properties. Cyclic tests apply oscillating loads, often until specimen failure, using load schemes that may involve either cyclical tension, compression or a combination of the two.
 
MTS offers advanced solutions for all varieties of materials testing, including monotonic and cyclic testing. Backed by more than 40 years of experience, MTS provides the technology and the specialized expertise labs need to perform accurate, repeatable tests that ensure materials and components meet standards. These complete solutions include:
 
Highly stiff, floor-standing servohydraulic load frames for a range of force 
   requirements
Intuitive, versatile and user-friendly software with powerful test design capabilities
Digital controllers with high channel density, high capacity and superior configurability
Rugged, high-performance grips and fixturing
