    Compression testing is a widely used materials testing technique to determine the behavior of materials under compressive loads. Tests are often performed on materials such as metal, plastic, rubber, wood and concrete. Compression testing involves compressing a sample in uniaxial or triaxial directions and measuring the deformation and strength properties of the material.

    Advantages of Compression Testing

    Compression testing provides valuable information about the strength and deformation properties of materials under compressive loads. This information is critical in determining whether a material is suitable for its intended application. Compression testing helps engineers understand how materials behave under different loading conditions, such as compression, shear, or tension. This knowledge can be used to design and optimize new products or materials. Compression testing can also be used to assess the performance and quality of existing materials.

    Additionally, compression testing provides a baseline for quality control. By testing the compressive properties of a material before using it in a product, manufacturers can ensure that it meets required specifications. This helps prevent product failures, reduce warranty claims and increase customer satisfaction.

    Common Compression Test Standards

    There are several compression test standards that are widely used across various industries. The following are some of the most common compression test standards:

    • ASTM D695

    This standard is used for testing the compressive properties of plastics and composites.

    • ASTM D1621

    This standard is used for testing the compressive properties of rigid cellular plastics.

    • ASTM D2166

    This standard is used for testing the unconfined compressive strength of cohesive soils.
