ASTM E209 is the standard practice for compression tests of metallic materials at elevated temperatures with conventional or rapid heating rates and strain rates. The test involves heating the test material to the desired temperature and the applying a constant uniaxial strain. The testing machine must be able to apply a constant strain to the test specimen. ASTM specifics the procedure for temperature control, temperature measurement, strain rate, and strain measurement. ASTM also has requirements for the jig, strain instrument, and recorders that can be used in the compression test.
