Contained Compression Testing using a Texture Analyser – Calculating Bulk Modulus

Ottawa CellBulk modulus is a defined as the relative change in a sample’s volume when a unit compressive or tensile stress acts uniformly over its surface. 

It is a measure of how resistant a substance is to pure compression. Its measurement is possible by the use of a Texture Analyser, providing care is taken over the sample setup.
