Soils Testing

Shivmalhar Leboratory's Mechanical testing division is well equipped to carry out a number of mechanical tests on various types of metallic and non-metallic materials. Test specimens are meticulously prepared in the machine workshop before conducting tests on them. Testing mechanical properties of a material is extremely important in assessing its potential performance, and also provides an indication of the presence or absence of inherent flaws in the design of the material. A wide variety of standardized mechanical tests exist to check for desired properties, like Tensile strength, Hardness tests, Impact resistance, Fatigue resistance, Ductility, Brittleness etc.


Shivmalhar Leboratory conducts a number of standardized and customized mechanical tests at its testing location with the use of various state-of-the-art instruments. Shivmalhar Leboratory uses various national and international standards like IS, ASTM, BS, ISO for conducting its testing activities.


Some of the main mechanical tests carried out by SML are :


  • » Tensile tests of various metallic items
  • » Rockwell (B and C Scales) and Brinell hardness tests
  • » Vickers hardness tests
  • » Micro hardness Tests
  • » Impact tests, Izod, BS & ASTM, upto -196°C
  • » Bend tests
