Apparatus for Tensile Testing in the Temperature Range of 4.2° to 300°K
Low temperature research is making an important contribution to the understanding of the fundamentals of the flow and fracture properties of metals in that the knowledge obtained in this temperature range provides clues to the behavior of metals at all operating temperatures. One aspect currently receiving considerable attention is the transition from ductile to brittle behavior. In order to facilitate such work; it is first necessary to develop apparatus with which low temperature mechanical testing can be performed.
