Strain hardening? I admit I don't know much about that, Chuck. Can you elaborate? Is this another way to test material strength?

I wonder if this is a little bit like a high-impact example of strain hardening, with the additional ingredient of temperature.

Revolutionary idea?

This seems like a revolutionary idea to create such a force on materials to test them for strength, but in a way it also makes perfect sense. I can't think of a more effective way to see how strong something is--in various aspects of life--than to exert extreme pressure on it. And it seems like the scientists feel the same way.
