We established Blade Labs in 2016 in response to our growing involvement in failure assessment and material testing. Located in the Houston’s Energy Corridor, our lab is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, including a scanning electron microscope to assess failures at the granular level. The lab perfectly complements work that is carried out by our Mechanics and Materials team.
The lab’s current capabilities include:
- Failure analyses
- Microstructural analyses
- Determination of mechanical properties
- Fracture mechanics properties
- In situ tensile and hardness measurements
- Magnetic Particle Inspection and Ultrasonic Thickness Testing
