Compression Testing of Polymers, Composites and Elastomers

A compression test determines the behavior of materials under a crushing load. The specimen is compressed and deformation at various loads is recorded. Compressive stress and strain are calculated. The resulting stress-strain diagram provides information on elastic limit, proportional limit, yield point, yield strength and compressive strength.
