Material Characterization Equipment

Material characterization is a critical element in all of the AM and PM research programs completed.  As such, a broad spectrum of tests is completed through the infrastructure within Dr. Bishop’s research facility itself as well as the laboratories of collaborating professors/centres at Dalhousie University.  An overview of the infrastructure utilized is shown below.

Thermodynamic Modelling (Departmental Resources/Dr. S.F. Corbin Group)

Powder Characterization (Minerals Engineering Centre/Bishop Group)

Residual Stress Measurements (Bishop Group)

Mechanical Testing (Bishop Group)

Thermal Analysis (Dr. S.F. Corbin Group/Bishop Group)

Microstructure Analyses (Departmental Resources)
