The INSTRON Model 8500 Testing System is designed to test the physical properties of a wide range of materials and structures. 

The system applies loads, using a hydraulic actuator, to a specimen of the material under test.  These loads can be applied in a cyclic or ramp form along one or more axes of the specimen. 

Testing of properties such as tensile strength, compressive strength, fatigue resistance, crack growth resistance, bend characteristics, etc. can be performed on materials such as metals ceramics, textiles, elastomers and virtually any other material.
