Development and Application of Test Equipment for Torsion Strength of Non-Metal Materials
In order to determine the torsion strength of non-metal materials at ambient and high temperature, a kind of equipment with inductive heating, infrared thermometer and torque loading by mechanical electrical rider was development. This equipment has advantages such as quick heating, accurate temperature test and controlling, easy controlling and continues of torque loading and test atmosphere can be controlled. The torsion strength of fireclay bricks with sample size of 40 mm × 40 mm × 230 mm, were tested separately at room temperature, 800°C, 1000°C, 1100°C and 1200°C, using this equipment. Results indicated that for the same batch of samples, the torsion strength determined by this equipment has good consistency, and mean while, it was found that the torsion strength decreased with the increase of test temperature obviously. In additional, developed equipment could be used for the determination of torsion creep at high temperature, the highest temperature of fracture under certain torque during the heating process, torque cycle fatigue failure of materials and so on.
