ASTM C695

Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Carbon and Graphite

The compressive strength is determined on a right cylinder. The diameter of the specimen must be ten times the maximum particle size and the ratio of height to diameter must be between 1.9 and 2.1.

Significance and Use

Carbon and graphite can usually support higher loads in compression than in any other mode of stress. This test, therefore, provides a measure of the maximum load-bearing capability of carbon and graphite objects.

 

1. Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the compressive strength of carbon and graphite at room temperature.

1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
