ASTM C1424 Monotonic Compressive Strength of Advanced Ceramics
ASTM C1424 test method covers the determination of compressive strength including stress-strain behavior, under monotonic uniaxial loading of advanced ceramics, at ambient temperature. Compression tests provide information on the strength and deformation of materials under uniaxial compressive stresses.
ASTM C1424 test technique covers the determination of compressive strength of advanced ceramics under uniaxial loading at ambient temperature (at a steady rate with no reversals from test initiation to final breakage). Compression testing is used to identify a material’s behavior or response when subjected to a compressive force by measuring fundamental factors including strain, stress, and deformation. Compression tests reveal a material’s strength and deformation when subjected to uniaxial compressive forces.
The ASTM C1424 test method is designed for advanced ceramics that demonstrate macroscopically isotropic, homogenous, and continuous behavior. Quality assurance, characterization, comparison, and research & development are all possible applications for this test procedure.
For the ASTM C1424 test, the specimens are cured underwater at a temperature equal to 18 ± 1°C until they have reached the testing age. After 7 or 28 days of curing, these specimens are evaluated on compression testing equipment. The test specimen is then put between two plates that distribute the applied force over the full surface area of two opposed faces of the test sample. The plates are then pushed together by compression testing equipment, flattening the sample. A compressed sample is usually decreased in the direction of the applied forces and expanded in the opposite direction. The load is directed at a constant rate of 140 kg/cm2 per minute until the specimen fails or ruptures.
Specimen Size :
Typically, ASTM C1424 uses a contoured, cylindrical test specimen with consistent stresses in the gauge section and negligible stress concentrations at geometric transitions.
In ASTM C1424, a compression test is done in contrast to a tension test, which is more prevalent. Compressive strength measurements are expressed in force per unit area.
i.e. Compressive strength = P/A (N/mm2) where,
P = Applied load (N)
A = Area of the specimen (mm2)

ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
