Meso biaxial tensile machine
The meso biaxial tensile machine allows one to apply in-plane biaxial stress states with arbitrary stress ratios and to perform strain path changes on thin-sheet metals. The device is optimized for in situ usage at synchrotron beam lines. Both dogbone and cruciform shaped samples can be mounted. The machine is controlled by an in-house written LabVIEW steering program.
