ASTM C 1358 (C-1358) determines the compressive strength including stress-strain behavior under monotonic uniaxial loading of continuous fiber-reinforced advanced ceramics at ambient temperatures. Compressive strength as used in ASTM C 1358 refers to the compressive strength obtained under monotonic uniaxial loading where monotonic refers to a continuous nonstop test rate with no reversals from test initiation to final fracture. ASTM C 1358 may be used for quality assurance, characterization, comparison, reliability assessment, and research and development.
