ASTM C695 – Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Carbon and Graphite
Significance and Use
4.1 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.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the compressive strength of carbon and graphite at room temperature.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
