Fracture Technology Associates (FTA) is the most trusted Fatigue Crack Growth and Fracture Toughness systems solution for critical application within industries such as Aerospace (Space, Commercial and Military), Defense, Transportation, Energy, and Education.
FTA was founded in 1984 by the internationally recognized fracture mechanics expert, J. Keith Donald. Keith was involved in Fracture Mechanics for over 50 years from the slide rule and graph paper analysis to the advanced systems we build today. See Keith’s scientific contributions.
FTA’s legacy was selected and passed to Laboratory Testing by Keith Donald in 2017. It is now our job to honor the integrity of the systems and provide a future path in creating the Fatigue Crack Growth and Fracture Toughness Systems of tomorrow with the direction of our leading expert, Dr. Matthew Adler.
Laboratory Testing’s 120,000 sq. ft. facility with over 180 employees became home to FTA in 2018. The Lab provides an advanced facility and setting to continue the legacy software and develop a plan for the future that is driven from the needs of our customer base.
