The principal activity of the research centre METRIS comprises research and standard testing in the following areas:

  • Chemical analysis of the structures of materials
  • Defining of the mechanical characteristics of metals (tensile strength, elastic modulus, hardness etc.)
  • Analysis of the surface structure of materials, corrosion and fracture 
  • Numerical analysis of structural details and constructions

Even though the activities of METRIS are primarily related to the necessities of the metal industry, the research and the tests can be carried out on numerous other non organic and organic materials, archeological and artistic samples.

A valuable activity of METRIS is also the cooperation with educational institutions through lectures, research and education.
