Component testing

This test corresponds to a tensile test with a reversed force direction. It is used to determine the material behavior of brittle materials. For example cast iron and ceramic. The compression behavior of foam materials can also be characterized.

In the experiment, a cylindrical sample is pressed uniformly. The increase in the force is measured and related to the cross-section.
