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).

ASTM D Compressive Properties Rigid Cellular Plastics – Instron
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 to compute the effective modulus of elasticity. Users of previous versions of software ast as Bluehill 2 and Bluehill 3 can easily upgrade to the newest version of Bluehill. They are designed with standard and optional features d11621 increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator.
ASTM D Testing is the compressive strength of a cellular material determined by applying load to a test specimen with a square or sstm cross section. To reduce the possible effects from off-center loading, it is preferred to place the swivel seat in the base.
After testing and analysis, compressive strength, modulus and deformation at maximum load are reported. Subscribe to Instron News!

Instron offers linear variable displacement transducers LVDTs for measurement directly from the platens. The values in parentheses aastm for information only. The data obtained from the compression tests provide a standard method of obtaining data for research and development and quality control.
ASTM D1621 – Compression Testing of Rigid Cellular Plastics
The x series LVDTs can mount directly on the series compression platens. The self-aligning nature of this fixture will maximize the contact area between the platen and the specimen.
The preload function in Bluehill Universal software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a asttm load.
It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements. Rigid foams are awtm used in the construction industry as sound and thermal insulation.
