Compression Testing

Compression testing is done to evaluate the behavior of a material subjected to a sustained load until its breaking point is reached. The specimen is kept between two platens or a flat surface and a platen and compressed til failure occurs.

    Compression testing is done in laboratory to evaluate the behavior of a material subjected to a sustained load until its breaking point or up to a certain limit. A suite of tests that measure fundamental variables like stress, strain, deformation, elastic modulus, yield, stiffness, and rupture characteristics is used to understand the material’s ability to recover from a specified compressive load. In most cases, the primary goal is to determine the maximum stress a specimen can withstand over a fixed period under constant or progressive load. By testing these properties in testing labs, engineers can better understand a material’s suitability for a specific application or a product’s performance under anticipated load conditions. Most materials and products are subjected to compressive forces during their lifecycle. Some examples include polymers, composites, elastomers, electronic components, construction materials, laminates, fibers, thin films, plastics, metals, and biomaterials.

    Compression testing can play a vital role in evaluating the components’ strength, characterizing materials’ properties, or assessing finished products’ performance. ASTM, ISO, or IEC testing standards or compression strength measurements are available for various industries during product development, production, or quality control. Customized testing is often performed for specific characterization or failure analysis studies.

    Our testing labs are well equipped to carry out compression testing and provide the best results to our clients based in the USA and other parts of the world. We at Infinita Lab perform not only routine tests, but also custom tests designed in our testing labs as per the client’s specific requirements.

      FAQs on Compression Testing

      Where can I get compression testing done?

      Our network of material testing labs, spread across the USA, provides compression testing by subjecting materials to sustained load conditions. Infinita Lab team will be happy to assist you with your compression testing requirements.

       

      What is compression testing of materials?

      Compressive testing shows how the material will react when it is compressed in end-use conditions. Compression tests measure fundamental variables, such as stress, strain, and modulus of elasticity to determine the material’s behavior or response under crushing loads. 

       

      What are the uses of compression testing?

       Compressive testing is used to evaluate a material’s suitability for a specific application or a product’s performance under anticipated load conditions. Compression testing plays a vital role in evaluating a component’s strength, characterizing material’s properties, or assessing a finished product’s performance.
