UHTCs are extremely refractory materials used in applications involving extreme environments where temperatures can exceed 2000C. Characterizing the mechanical properties of these materials at such high temperatures is not possible. So a non-contact technique of characterization is developed that utilizes electromagnetic Lorentz forces to apply mechanical load. While this technique enables mechanical tests as high as 2500C, additional advantages include extremely fast tests, lower cost than conventional equipment, controlled environment conditions and convenient table-top size. We will present the working principle, equipment building and ultra high temperature characterization data obtained from it.
