Test Types © Swansea Materials Research & Testing Ltd (SMaRT) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Swansea University 2012 Research Facilities Vickers macro/micro hardness testing machines Impact testing machines A comprehensive metallography suite for microstructural analysis pre & post test. Finite Element Modelling Finite element modelling capability is available amongst the SMaRT team to support stress analysis of specimen and sub-element geomtries, plus predictions of mechanical performance. Models to describe complex creep-fatigue interactions have been developed to predict cyclic deformation and crack propagation based on laboratory generated constitutive behaviour. Various commercial or in-house codes are employed. The SMaRT route to materials solutions Research Facilities available at SMaRT
