Materials Science & Testing

Materials science investigates the relationship between the structure of materials at atomic or molecular scales and their macroscopic properties. It also deals with fundamental properties, characteristics of materials, and failure analysis. Applications include strain/stress and vibration measurements on items like car or aircraft body parts, surface tension and tensile strength studies, and investigations of the behaviour of composite materials.
