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. ASTM D is similar to ISO and describes a procedure for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials. Similar to ISO , ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive properties of rigid cellular plastics (i.e. foam).

Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: 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. ASTM D specifies dd1621 test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics.
Bluehill LE for Basic Testing. The preload function in Bluehill Adtm software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a pre-defined load.

The values in parentheses are for information only. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. Subscribe to Our Newsletters. Suitable systems for this application include Series and Series electromechanical testing machines equipped with compression platens. Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead.
The test specimens are centered between two compression platens photo below left and load is applied at a constant crosshead or actuator rate. It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements. 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.
The challenges of testing to this standard are: To reduce the possible effects from off-center loading, it is preferred to place the swivel seat in the base. Software for Series Systems. The brochure addresses the most prominent and widely-used standards in the materials testing industry for plastics.
ASTM D1621-16 Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
Specimen d isplacement and load are recorded throughout the test. The x series LVDTs can mount directly on the series compression platens. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. After testing and analysis, compressive strength, modulus and deformation at maximum load are reported.

The tests cannot be considered significant for engineering design in applications differing zstm from the load – time scale of the standard test. The preload function reduces the amount of operator interaction, saving time and improving accuracy.
ASTM D – 16 Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
The data obtained from the compression tests provide a standard method of obtaining data for research and development and quality control. Glossary of Materials Testing Terms. Onsite Awtm At Your Facility.
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 strength at maximum load and ast compute the effective modulus of elasticity.

Touchstone has a large environmental chamber photo on right capable of conditioning a wide range atm sample sizes.
How can we help you? They are designed with standard and optional features that increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator. Instron offers linear variable displacement transducers LVDTs for measurement directly from the platens. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Concrete, Asphalt and Rock.
