Scelta e caratterizzazione dei materiali metallici

The characterization of metallic materials is carried out by:

  • literature research through publication databases and European and American standards;
  • mechanical characterization tests (tensile, compression, bending, hardness, fatigue);
  • metallographic analysis;
  • determination of surface roughness;
  • ageing and corrosion tests.

Once evaluated the main characteristics of the metal, the choice of the most suitable to the specific application is performed, assessing also economic and availability aspects.
