Fraunhofer Center HTL offers a wide range of mechanical testing procedures at room temperature and at temperatures up to 1500°C for the testing of ceramics and ceramic fiber composites. In addition to standardized testing procedures, the HTL also develops special testing procedures according to customer requirements. Moreover, component testing can be performed with specially designed testing tools. In addition to mechanical testing, the HTL also offers thermal testing with special ThermoOptical Measurement Systems (TOM) developed by the HTL. It is also possible to validate the measurement results using finite element modeling.
