Gripping bent specimens is challenging, but there are a few things you do. One, flatten the tabs with a small press prior to inserting into normal grip jaws meant for flat specimens. Two, use a combination of convex and concave grip jaws to eliminate the need to flatten the specimens. Three, use a set of dual side-acting grips that will basically flatten the ends when the grips are closed.

Fatigue testing of composite materials is becoming increasingly important as they find use in a wider range of critical structural applications with the expectation of long service life. It is now widely recognized that these materials do accumulate damage over long periods of cyclic loading, even if the failure mode and mechanisms are radically different to conventional metallic fatigue.

Mechanical Project Engineer Audrey Briodeau-Line speaks with the Women's Engineering Society about working at Instron in the male-dominated engineering industry. The article tells Audrey's story of working at Instron, beginning while at an engineering university in France. In discussing her career choices, she reveals the benefits of being a female engineer, especially in a company like Instron that provides assistance for women.
