Recently reported results on the tungsten lifetime/fatigue tests under conditions expected in the Neutrino Factory target have strengthened the case of solid target option for a Neutrino Factory. This paper gives description of the detailed measurements of the tungsten properties at high temperature and high stress. We have performed extensive set of measurements of the surface displacement and velocity of the tungsten wires that were stressed by passing a fast, high current pulse through a thin sample. Radial and longitudinal oscillations of the wire were measured by a Laser Doppler Vibrometer. The wire was operated at temperatures of 300-2500 K by adjusting the pulse repetition rate. In doing so we have tried to simulate the conditions (high stress and temperature) expected at the Neutrino Factory. Most important result of this study is an experimental confirmation that strength of tungsten remains high at high temperature and high stress. The experimental results have been found to agree very well with LS-DYNA modelling results.
