Welding and Joining Laboratory




Research Laboratory

  • The Metallographic Lab            

The metallography lab. has full facilities for preparation and examination of materials ( specially metals and alloys) by various optical microscopes. In addition , image analyzing facility is available.

Referring to chemical analysis of each sample, the recognizing of different phases on the microstructure and the production history of the sample can be provided.

These examinations can be helpful to determine the proper production route for specimen owing desirable microstructure and mechanical properties.

  • Mechanical Properties Lab                                               

This Laboratory is equipped with machines and instruments to measure mechanical properties of materials such as tensile, compression, fatigue, and creep properties:

- Tensile and compression tests

Tensile and compression tests can be carried out with different cross head speed from 0.05 to 50 cm/min at different temperatures up to 1600ºC.

- Impact test

The impact machine is able to measure the fracture energy of materials according to charpy standard  


- Hardness test

Two hardness machines are able to measure the hardness of materials with Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell methods.
