In the scientific area in the laboratory a fundamental research of the sensors of the weak magnetic fields, design and construction of relaxation magnetometers, development of methods for the metrology of the vector sensors of the physical fields and design and development of the magnetometric methods for the metal detection, archaeology and ecology is performed.

Laboratory of material mechanical testing

The laboratory is used for the determination of fundamental material characteristics, mainly by the strength, fatigue, hardness, notch toughness and creeping resistance testing. It contains the device for the static pulling tests (in the range of 10 tons) with the possibility of applying higher temperatures and also for the fatigue pulling-tension testing. For the hardness testing two Rockwell hardness testers, two Brinell hardness testers and one combined Brinell-Vickers hardness tester are available. For the fatigue tests the MUI device for the cyclic mechanical stress testing with the rotational bending and with the frequency of 6000 rot/min is available. For the toughness determination Charpy hammer is used.

Laboratory of metallography

The laboratory is used for the preparation of the metallographic specimens and for their observation by the metalographic microscopes. In addition to the six smaller microscopes also one table microscope, which enables microhardness measurement, macroscopic observation as well as photographical documentation is available. For the preparation of the metallographic specimens the appropriate mechanisms consisting of wet grinders and automatic polishing machines is available.

L15 Laboratory of diagnostics

The laboratory serves for the execution of the material tests mainly in the area of contact fatigue, whereas it disposes of R-MAT and AXMAT devices assigned for the analysing of the damages and formation of pittings on the specimens of the examined materials. Furthermore the laboratory is in cooperation with the Department of Aviation Engineering also used as a vibrational diagnostics laboratory forasmuch as it is equipped with devices manufactured by the B+K and CMVA 55 Microlog companies.
