About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Cost-effective mechanical testing equipment for characterising creep behaviour of materials under combined tension-torsion loading


The team has designed, fabricated, and tested a mechanical-cum-creep testing machine that can measure elongation and twist, with high resolution in samples, subjected to tension and torsion loadings at given temperatures. The fabricated prototype of our machine is different from other commercially available ones in the following regard: Ability to apply combined tension-torsion loads, Measurement of creep behavior under time-varying temperature/loads, Horizontal machine layout, simplifying reconfiguration, maintenance, and assembly, Modular nature of the machine, allowing easy reconfigurability
