This lab provides facilities for the study of metallurgical
properties of various types of structural materials. Ovens, Polishing
Machines, Microscopes and a Polarograph are some of the equipment
that can be employed in Non-Destructive Testing of materials and
parts. Recently, this lab has acquired a Rockwell Harness Tester.
This lab also has a Mobile Metal Analyzer with an on-board computer
system. Vibration and Acoustic Test Apparatus available in the lab
permit the study of unsteady forces. A Creep Testing Machine is also
available to study time dependent behavior of different materials.
This Creep testing facility can test at elevated temperatures. A new
attraction being inducted in near future is the Metallurgical
Computerized Microscope with image capturing facility.
