ASTM C1424 (C-1424) determines the compressive strength including stress-strain behavior, under monotonic uniaxial loading of advanced ceramics at ambient temperature. Compressive strength as used in this test method refers to the compressive strength obtained under monotonic uniaxial loading.

Compression tests provide information on the strength and deformation of materials under uniaxial compressive stresses. This test method may be used for quality assurance, characterization, comparison, and research and development.

Compression Test Machines for ASTM C1424

Compression Test Machines

Type: Electromechanical or Static Hydraulic
Force Range: 5 kN (1125 lbf) to 3,000 kN (670,000 lbf)

Our compression test machines measure characteristics such as ultimate compression strength, yield strength, deflection and modulus. Compression test machines are typically configured by adding compression platens to a universal test machine but we also have compression only machines available.
