ASTM C 1368 (C-1368) determines the slow crack growth parameters of advanced ceramics by using constant stress-rate flexural testing in which flexural strength is determined as a function of applied stress rate in a given environment at ambient temperature.

TestResources testing machines have the capability of applying at least four test rates with at least three orders of magnitude, ranging from 10^–1 to 10^2 N/s for load-controlled mode and from 10^–7 to 10^–4 m/s for displacement-controlled mode. By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you.
