compression stress

; pressure the product (in pascals or kilopascals) of the force exerted by body weight (in newtons) divided by the surface area of the feet (in centimetres squared); compressive stress is inversely proportional to area, e.g. if the ground contact area of the foot at toe off is half that of the foot during midstance, compression stress (pressure) acting on the forefoot is double that of the force exerted across the whole of the plantar surface at midstance

While the compression stress relaxation method ISO 3384(A) data are quite good to compare the potential sealing properties of different materials, data from method ISO 3384(B) are more useful to the design engineer, in combination with force decay data between 0 and 30 minutes compression.
For compression stress evaluation the samples with different amount of the binder and different cardboard granulometry composition were prepared.
