You have a specific task regarding a component or an individual requirement regarding a material, and you have to qualify it or evaluate deviations? You need supplemental tests, support in the failure investigation or fracture mechanical properties?


Our team at Framatome provides various test procedures for determining the behavior and the material properties of standardized specimens and finished components under mechanical and thermal stress. The tests are carried out by adequately qualified personel on time and conforming to standards. The results are documented in the form of test certificates or comprehensive work reports.


Our service portfolio:

  • Work preparation / CAD
  • Handling of test specimen manufacturing
  • Hardness tests, e.g. as per Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell
  • Tensile tests on standard and micro-specimens
  • Compression tests
  • Notched bar impact tests on standard, micro- and reconstituted specimens
  • Bend tests, flattening tests, drift expanding tests
  • Pellini tests (drop-weight test)
  • Fracture mechanics tests and fatigue tests
  • Customer-specific component tests
  • Manufacturing of irradiation capsules
  • Acceptance certificates 3.1 (DIN EN 10204)
