Micromechanical testing at high strain rates and varying temperatures of 3D-printed polymer structures

Conference Dates

September 29-October 4, 2019


Following recent developments, in-situ nanoindenter systems can now perform tests at much faster speeds, enabling us to accomplish micro-compression experiments using strain rates in the range of 103 s-1 for micron-sized specimens. Thus, it has become possible to study deformation processes occurring in the very small scales of all types of materials. Here, we focus on the effect that dynamic testing speeds have on the mechanical behaviour of 3D-printed micron-sized polymer structures. We look at the influence of temperature and compare results obtained from compression and tensile tests.
