Corelle Strength Testing
Sirs ,can you suggest a good way of testing Corelle
dinnerware and other " durable" dinnerware please? . I want to conduct an
experiment that will show how strong it really is.
The first step would be to analyze the traits you want to test. You could
create extreme tests, but would they give information that helps you? What
qualities are important, breakage? Then what would be practical? In use I
doubt you drop a plate more than 4 feet, if that, so what test most closely
simulates use? Next, a series of tests appear in order as all products have
multiple features. Finally, testing one brand gives information about that
brand, but you could buy another, so do you want to test others for
comparison? Consumer reports tests most everything, so looking at how they
do their tests can give you a head start.
