Who Should Attend: Anyone who uses metal and materials in a manufacturing environment and wants to learn about Iowa State University laboratory resources available to Iowa manufacturers.

Materials Lab

  • Materials/Metallurgists use research-based methods and specialized equipment to provide technical assistance on materials problems.
  • Failure analysis that can help identify root causes and resolve warranty issues to keep product moving.

Structures Lab

  • Product testing evaluates your product in a controlled environment to understand or verify its expected performance.
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA) uses computer simulation to predict behaviors of materials in real-world conditions to optimize product designs.

Nondestructive Evaluation Lab

  • Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) uses noninvasive techniques to evaluate the integrity of a material or structure, or to quantitatively measure some characteristic of a test subject.
  • NDE can be used to inspect incoming materials, control manufacturing processes, verify proper processing and assembly, or inspect for in-service damage
