Abstract

In this paper a miniaturized mechanical testing system designed for multiple testing modes is described. The main testing modes include (1) constant displacement rate testing in uniaxial tensile, compressive, and cyclic loading; (2) load relaxation testing; and (3) indentation hardness testing with a controlled displacement rate or displacement (load relaxation) with an indentation probe size as small as a few micrometers in diameter. The capabilities of the testing system in different testing modes are demonstrated. Tensile and load relaxation test results of thin wires with an accuracy comparable to bulk specimen results are presented. Also reported are results from indentation load relaxation tests with indentation depths applicable to irradiated material testing.
