The Observation and Measurement Platforms
his platform consists of measurement and observation tools which are complementary to the equipment used on the other technical platforms. It has different cameras which enable visible or infrared imaging in order to obtain better definition of local behaviors of heterogeneous materials. Microscopic means (optical, SEM, etc) are used for the microstructural analysis of the materials (granular structure, texture, chemical composition, etc) and fracture surfaces..
The PHOTRON SA-X2 high speed camera
The PHOTRON SA-X2 is a high speed camera which enables the filming and observation of a test with a number of images per second that can reach 1 million fps.
Gom Aramis 2M, 4M, 5M digital image stereo correlation systems
IRDL uses three systems : GOM ARAMIS 2M, 4M and 5M. These systems consist of two cameras and post-processing software which enable the measurement of 3D kinematic fields by stereo correlation of digital images.
The VHX-5000 digital optical microscope
The Keyence VHX-5000 digital microscope enables X20 to X5000 magnification during optical image acquisition. The microscope also enables surface measurements, the acquisition and measurement of surfaces in 3D and provides automatic image assembly.
The FMP30 FERITSCOPE measures ferrite content through magnetic induction. It does this in two ways : through the percentage of ferrites Fe and the number of ferrites FN.
Salin Ascott The Ascott salt fog climatic chamber
The salt fog climatic chamber enables standardized tests on the resistance of metallic materials to corrosion. With a volume of 1000L, the temperature can be varied from ambient to 50°C.
