1) Uniaxial Tension Test

The material is stretched in the principal uniaxial deformation model and test is carried out to ISO 37 using regular tension test pieces.

2) Planar Shear Testing

There is no published standard for this test, although the principles are identical to a uniaxial tension test. The test is carried out as per SAE guidelines The essential difference to the standard tensile test lies in the geometry is a rectangular.

3) Volumetric Compression Testing

There is no published standard for this test and the guidelines for conducting the tests are provided by SAE . The testing is carried out to simulate hydrostatic compression.

4) Uniaxial Compression Testing

Uniaxial compression testing is carried out to characterize the material under the principal deformation mode of compression. Under certain circumstances, compression testing has advantages over other testing methods for material characterization.
