Wood & Cork


Mechanical Testing

Within the group of natural materials, FrontWave has developed special skills in the characterisation of some cellular materials, such as wood and cork. Their behaviour is an important step in the valorisation and therefore, special methodologies have been developed to allow our clients and adequate evaluation of their products.
In the present, one of the activities requested by industry is related with the use of image analysis for evaluating materials and products. Through its partnership with IST, FrontWave has become a player in performing tests using 3D Video (Digital) Image Correlation employed in cellular materials, where ordinary techniques are not frequently employed.
