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 is a non-profit company limited by guarantee (Reg. No. 2149907) and is also a Registered Charity (Reg. No. 800892).
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. Further information on becoming a member can be obtained via the contacts shown below.
Events & Meetings
In addition to regular committee meetings, the HTMTC organises a number of workshops and seminars on topics relating to activities relevant to field of high temperature testing. Details of past meetings can be found here and information relating to past and future events can be found on the events page of this website.
