A theoretical treatment is given for the total diametral compression of a transversely isotropic elastic cylinder under compression between parallel rigid plates under conditions of plane strain. Experimental results are presented for the compression of isotropic and oriented cylinders of nylon 6.6 and linear polyethylene (Rigidex). These results confirm that the theoretical treatment is valid to a good degree of approximation. In the case of linear polythylene, where data are presented for ultra-highly oriented extrudates, the results are of some interest with regard to the elastic properties of these unusual materials.
