ASTM D7137 covers compression residual strength properties of multidirectional polymer matrix composite laminated plates, subjected to quasi-static indentation per Test Method D6264 or drop-weight impact per Test Method D7136 prior to application of compressive force. Susceptibility to damage from concentrated out-of-plane forces is one of the major design concerns of many structures made of advanced composite laminates.

By means of our compression testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing solution that is right for you. Give one of our application engineers a call today for help with creating the best budget and testing plan according to ASTM D7137.
