Stage 3 of ultrasonic fatigue testing of hardmetals in the gigacycle regime project to be launched

The EPMA has announced it will launch a further club project on ‘Ultrasonic fatigue testing of hardmetals in the gigacycle regime (UFTH): Stage 3’, in partnership with TU Vienna, Austria, and CEIT San Sebastian, Spain.

The UFTH Stage 3 will first complete the UFTH 2a project, where a testing rig and procedure for ultrasonic fatigue testing by three-point bending was developed and built by testing an additional set of samples. It will also evaluate a new testing strategy based on brazed hardmetal-steel testing specimens.

Participation in the project is open to all organisations. A full description and registration to the UFTH Stage 3 project can be accessed here (PDF).
