ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics. Rigid foams. 22 Feb Similar to ISO , ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive properties of rigid cellular plastics (i.e. foam). This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D on Plastics.

Force range of 5 kN to r1621 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static tension and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models.

Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:. Test data is obtained, and from a complete load-deformation curve it is possible to compute the compressive stress at any load such as compressive stress at proportional-limit load or compressive e1621 at maximum load and to compute the effective modulus of elasticity.

The tests cannot be considered significant for engineering design in applications differing widely from the load – time scale of the standard test. Automotive Interior Mechanical Testing Guide. If deformations are significant, the measured deformations differ significantly from those in other methods because of the compression sphere that forms and do not provide reproducible results.

How to Build a New Test. The parallelism of the platens is important so spherical seated self aligning platens are used along with a fixed height platen. Forces up to 10 kN 2, lbf Low force tabletop systems Modular series of five frame options with adjustable test space Affordable testing option for tension, compression, bend, peel and much more. The x series LVDTs can mount directly on the series compression platens. ISOMethod B also describes direct compressive deformation measurement of the specimen.

They are designed with standard and optional features that increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator. This makes it possible to effectively determine compression platen movement with a accuracy of over 5 micrometers.

The challenges of testing to this standard are: The brochure addresses the most prominent and widely-used standards in the materials testing industry for plastics.

While in EN and ISO the movement of the compression platen is typically measured by the crosshead travel of the testing machine with a defined minimum accuracy, ASTM D describes an additional method that compensates for the self-deformation of the testing machine.

Email addresses must contain the symbol. If there are no material specifications, then the default conditions apply. Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method.

Astmm Support Calibration Calculators. Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor…. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. To reduce the possible effects from off-center loading, it is preferred to place the swivel seat in the base.

ASTM D1621 Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics How to Guide

The values in parentheses are for d16621 only. Precisely measure the area of each specimen using the method recommended in the specification. Contact Us Request an Accessory Catalog. Available from a 1 mm 0. Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead.

Specimen d isplacement and load are recorded throughout the test. Additional measurement of compression platen movement by direct displacement measurement is not required. Suitable systems for this application include Series and Series electromechanical testing machines equipped with compression platens. Astj offers linear variable displacement transducers LVDTs for measurement directly from the platens.

Awtm compressive strength using the load amount at which ever point in step four occurs first. When you are ready to test your materials to this standard, please refer to the official ASTM D specification. Make sure that deflection is being recorded either automatically based on crosshead position or manually at 0. Two rigid compression platens can be employed but then a deflectometer xstm recommended to minimize error due to compliance from the system. MTESTQuattro software controller is capable of graphically displaying deflection based on crosshead position in real-time.


Method B provides deformation data and a compression modulus that is less influenced by force application effects. Bluehill Universal Brochure Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience. Standard load ratings d16621 to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2.

ASTM D – 10 Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties Of Rigid Cellular Plastics

The system can also be connected to a defectometer to provide more accurate deflection data. Center the sample in the compression platens and begin applying load at the indicated rate.

It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form. Touchstone has a large environmental chamber photo on right capable of conditioning a wide range of sample sizes.

ASTM D Testing is the compressive strength of a cellular material determined by applying load to a test specimen with a square or circular cross section. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Make sure that your samples are the correct size as indicated in the specification. The self-aligning nature of this fixture will maximize the contact area between the platen and the specimen.

The standards differ in the dimensions of the specimen and in the test execution. The preload function in Bluehill Universal software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a pre-defined load.

The preload function reduces the amount of operator interaction, saving time and improving accuracy. Planar Biaxial Testing Guide. This post is intended to help you understand the basic test procedure and the equipment needed to perform this test with certainty.
