    Abstract

    An instrumental attachment and testing method was developed on a QTest™ tensile tester to evaluate leather compressibility. Six types of leather including pig, deer, cow, emu, goat, and alligator, were tested in terms of compressive modulus, linearity, energy, resilience, and thickness. A linear function was proposed to characterize the relationship between logarithmic stress and strain. This enabled calculation of all initial compressive moduli for these leather samples. The instrumental obtained data helped comparison of the compressive properties among the leather samples.
