Bend Fixtures

Constant Radius Bending 

Constant radius bend fixtures are designed to apply a bending moment at a fixed radius. This type of testing is sometimes referred to as "Bending on a Mandrel". With this approach the proximal end of the specimen is fixed while the distal end of the specimen is moved through an arc. To ensure the specimen bend achieves a fixed radius, the specimen is bent over a mandrel of known radius. This test is useful for achieving predictable positive and compressive stresses.

To facilitate the bending, either the test frame's rotary actuator is used or linear motion is converted to rotary motion. The fixtures are designed to accommodate a statistically significant number of test specimens and can be used with either an ambient air environment or PBS bath.
