Stressing for Test Purposes of Materials in Tubular Form Using Elastomeric Inserts—Practical Testing Procedures



This paper describes mainly the practical aspects of a simple and rapid method of elastic hoop stressing materials in tubular form using elastomeric inserts. The method can be used for stressing to required limits, for testing to fracture, or for obtaining yield loads. It is extremely suitable for the testing of brittle materials. Stress equations and insert specimen coefficients of friction are given in the appendixes.
