Test Facilities

     Over all the years since its founding, the Institute has created a number of unique testing facilities for studying the mechanical properties of materials and structural members under constant (short-term and long-term), cyclic, and impulsive loads, in the conditions of simple and combined stress states, at high and low temperatures, etc. In the past 6-7 years, the Institute has strengthened its testing capabilities by acquiring new advanced testing machines and systems.
       Order No. 665-p of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, issued 27.12.2006, granted the national heritage status to the Institute's high-temperature gas-dynamic, pneumohydraulic cryogenic, impact and impulsive loading, and hydraulic strength test stands.
