In the process of product development the characterisation of materials in terms of electrical, mechanical and thermal properties plays an important role.
Within the laboratory we have the capability to undertake most standard tests and when required we can also access specialist test equipment and expertise from within the Faculty of Engineering, Science and Mathematics. Often with forensic investigation it is necessary to characterise materials and interpret the results in terms of cause or effect of a given problem/failure.
