Each sample was loaded and compressed to the limit of distortion using a Tensometer 6907 mechanical testing facility.
The lap shear test was conducted at 25[degrees]C using a Hounsfield Tensometer model H 10 KS, operated at 50 mm/min crosshead speed.
The wound tensile strength was measured using tensometer on day 15 under anaesthesia.
In order to determine the fracture toughness of the fabricated composites, Charpy impact tests were performed at room temperature using a Hounsfield Balanced Impact Tester (Tensometer Ltd., Croydon, England).
The aluminium to aluminium joints have been tested using tensometer to obtain the tensile shear strength on each combination of parameters.
All specimens were tested for flexural resistance on the Hounsfield tensometer and for impact strength on Hounsfield balanced pendulum impact machine.
The deformation force is determined by the usage of the tensometer device "Spider 8" with the appropriate software.
Students are still let loose on the Hounsfield Tensometer, which doesn't seem to have changed much.
The flexural strength was measured by using universal testing machine (Instron-3366) with a strain rate 5mm/min and impact strength by balanced impact testing machine (Hounsfield balanced impact testing apparatus (Tensometer Ltd.
