Compression Testing

Compression Testing

Compression testing is a very common testing method that is used to establish the compressive force or crush resistance of a material and the ability of the material to recover after a specified compressive force is applied and even held over a defined period of time. Compression tests are used to determine the material behaviour under a load. The maximum stress a material can sustain over a period under a load (constant or progressive) is determined.
