Material Characterization

Material characterization is the process of measuring and determining physical, chemical, mechanical and microstructural properties of materials.

Micro-Computed Tomography 

X-ray micro tomography uses x-rays to create cross-sections of a physical object that can be used to recreate a virtual model (3D model) without destroying the original object.

Compression testing is a testing method that is used to establish the compressive force or crush resistance of a material and the ability of the material to recover after a specified compressive force is applied and even held over a defined period of time.
