This is a release we and many of our customers have been waiting for. With release 3.51, lab managers can finally standardize on Bluehill® 3 for all their static tests across all our current static (Electromechanical, Static Hydraulic) and dynamic testing machines (Servo Hydraulic and ElectroPuls systems). Starting with 3.51, Bluehill® 3 can also be used to set up and run torsion tests on the MT Torsion line of testers. Apart from the platform extensions, this release also has some nice enhancements geared towards high temperature applications and metals testing.

Launched in 1998, the International Space Station is a research laboratory that enables the study of many scientific disciplines under the unique conditions of the space environment. The station is a shared project between five space agencies: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (USA) (NASA), the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the European Space agency (ESA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
Among the many scientific disciplines studied is, of course, materials science.
