The relationship between uniaxial stress on an assembly of particles in an instrumented mould and the resultant compressed powder volume has been examined to identify the sequential changes in the assembly due to particle rearrangement, formation of support structures, deformation and, ultimately, bulk compression. Materials were selected which were either non-compactable and non-coherent (polypropylene and polystyrene) or compactable coherent plastic (polyethylene), plastic-like (sodium chloride) and fragmentary (sugar and dicalcium phosphate). Differentiation of the compaction/compression profiles, obtained from a computer-interfaced and instrumented uniaxial compression assembly, classified the materials into compactable and non-compact groups. These characteristic groups extended and modified the classification initially proposed by Walker.
