AbstractA critical review of the problems asociated wth the design of an ideal platen for uniaxial loading tests is presented. A method of design based on an analytical approach is then formulated. The method permits a liberal choice of material for constructing the platen, which consists mainly of a low modulus plug confined in a metallic ring. A finite element approach has been employed to substantiate the proposed method. Practical design aspects are also discussed.
