• Single fibre dimensional
  • Single fibre tensile

fibra.stress is a high-precision, automated tensile tester with integrated dimensional capabilities. The combined dimensional analysis module measures each fibre cross-section. This can be used to normalise the tensile data to reduce data variability and help discriminate subtle changes in the fibres. It also enables in-situ dimensional measurements throughout the duration of a tensile test, from which the Poisson’s ratio can be calculated. fibra.stress supports a wide range of fibre types/gauge lengths, and multiple methods including extension, stress relaxation and hysteresis.

Key features:

  • Combined dimensional and tensile testing for increased accuracy
  • Wide range of fibre types and gauge lengths supported, including natural fibres and hair
  • Intuitive application-led software
