Center staff are actively involved in the development of new test methods and the evaluation of existing tests. We can do comparative evaluations on specific materials. Capabilities exist to evaluate sensors, design or apply electronics, write specialized software, and design and build test equipment.

The center also undertakes proprietary research and testing projects for clients on a contract basis. These may include ceramic/refractory materials evaluation, development/characterization of new test procedures or evaluation of firing behavior. Following discussion of the project with a client, a proposal is prepared outlining the work to be performed, project schedule, and estimated cost. The Center utilizes the services of private consultants, University faculty, and others to complement its own professional staff and testing capabilities.
