Facilities
Creep machines for helikoid spring specimens (high sensitivity, low stresses)
Contact person: RNDr. Luboš Kloc, CSc.
  • Temp. range: 150°C to 1000°C

  • Stress range: 0.2MPa to approx. 100 MPa

  • Strain sensitivity: better than 10-6

  • Strain rate range: 10-9 to 10-13 s-1

  • Protective atmosphere: purified argon or hydrogen, air



  • Two methods have been developed to produce the helicoid spring specimens from metallic materials

  • Wire drawing, wounding on the threaded bolt and annealing. The method is suitable for pure metals and mild model alloys.

  • Machining from tube. The method is suitable for structural materials. The microstructure of the original tube is maintained
