TC11 Scope

The High Temperature Mechanical Testing Committee (HTMTC) was established in 1982 following a conference held at NPL on 'Measurement of High Temperature Mechanical Properties of Materials'. The membership of the committee includes experts in the field of high temperature testing drawn from industry, research institutions and universities. The HTMTC operates as Technical Committee 11 (TC11) of the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS).

The HTMTC aims to improve the techniques and procedures used for the high temperature testing of materials, and to disseminate this information to the materials community as a whole.

It achieves these aims by:

  • Providing a Forum for Discussion

  • Organizing Conferences and Laboratory Visits

  • Publishing Conference Proceedings and Codes of Practice

  • Initiating Research Activities

Membership of the HTMTC is open to all interested parties particularly engineers, scientists and technical personnel from industry, laboratories and research institutes who have an interest in high temperature mechanical testing. For further information on becoming a member, please contact the secretary of the committee.
