Mechanical property measurements at cryogenic, room, and high temperatures

Various mechanical properties such as tensile strength, strain, torsion, yield strength, are measured at controlled strain rates over a temperature range of 77 K to about 2000 K. Also, the critical current density is measured of superconductors is measured at 77 K simultaneously with mechanical property testing.
