Our laboratories are well equipped with latest research infrastructure and software. We have commercial devices and measurement equipment, but also wide variety of devices that are designed and built for a specific purpose. On this page we show some examples of the most commonly used equipment including the high velocity particle impactor, the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar devices, Digital Image Correlation and high speed video systems, and the in-situ nanoindenter. The department also has modern and versatile research equipment for material characterization including impact hammers, drop towers, and various servohydraulic and screw driven materials test systems from Instron and MTS. Our group collaborates closely with the Tampere Microscopy Center, where moden electron microscopes and competent staff can help in our studies. We are part of the unit of Engineering Materials Science.
