ASTM D7078 TESTING FIXTURE

Shear Test Fixtures are designed for in-plane or interlaminar shear testing of composite materials. The V-Notched Beam Method, or more commonly known as the Iosipescu Shear Method, was standardized into ASTM D5379 in 1993, while the V-Notched Rail Shear Method was more recently introduced in 2005 under ASTM D7078. Both …

ASTM D732 TESTING FIXTURE

ASTM D 732, defines a punch-type of shear test. This test method covers the procedure for determining the shear strength of composite materials in the form of sheets, plates, and molded shapes. The thicknesses of specimen can range from 0.050” to 0.500”. A disc from 1” diameter will be drilled by the …

ASTM D2344 TESTING FIXTURE

This system establishes the short-beam strength of reinforced composite materials with high modulus. The specimen is a short beam machined from a curve or a plate rolled up to 6,00 mm [0.25 in.] thick. The beam is loaded in three-point bending. Application of this test method is limited to continuous- …

ASTM D4255 A TESTING FIXTURE

This test method indicates the cutting properties in the plane of a high modulus fiber-reinforced composite materials by two procedures. As regards the procedure A, laminates stuck between two pairs of loading rails are tested. When the tension load is applied to the rails, shear forces arise in the specimen. …

ASTM D5379 TESTING FIXTURE

This fixtures has been designed for in-plane or interlaminar shear testing of composite materials. The V-Notched Beam Method, better known as Iosipescu Shear Method, was standardized into ASTM D5379 in 1993. For this test method V-notches specimen design is used in order to create a localized and approximate uniform shear …

ASTM C273 B TESTING FIXTURE

A sandwich panel or the core material itself can be tested  in shear parallel to the flatwise plane. The fixture can be used to apply either a tensile or a compressive loading, although a tensile loading is most commonly utilized in order to eliminate buckling as a potential failure mode. …
