    Abstract

    During a wide-ranging experimental study of compression testing of unidirectional fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP), covering several materials and test methods, it became apparent that the variability of data could be reduced by adopting a rigorous and consistent approach to all phases of specimen production. Details are given of the procedures adopted, together with results from an associated parameter study.
