RFDA Measurement Systems for Material Characterization & Product Inspection

IMCE provides measurement systems and services to characterize elastic material properties such as Young’s modulus, shear modulus, Poisson’s ratio and internal friction. The Resonant Frequency and Damping Analyzer (RFDA) is based on the impulse excitation technique in other words the analysis of the vibration signal from an impacted specimen. IMCE’s advanced material analysis software and innovative hardware technology provide state of the art solutions for R&D laboratories, both academic and industrial as well as research institutes. IMCE offers a material testing method to characterize elastic properties according to ISO, ASTM and EN -standards at room temperature as well as high temperature.

Benefits of RFDA measurement devices

  • Non-destructive measurement of elastic properties as well as damping properties (Q-1)
  • Large temperature range: -80 °C – 1700 °C
  • Applicable to porous and brittle materials due to small strains
  • Information about internal structure as well as damage
  • Reliable, fast and easy accessible measurement technique
  • Limited restrictions on sample geometry and dimensions
