The specimen is a short beam machined from a curved or a flat laminate up to 6.

Scale markings are engraved on the base to aid in setting the desired span length, by sliding the specimen supports to the required positions. Prepare at least five test specimens as described in the standard. ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the short-beam strength of high-modulus fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites. Sales Support Calibration Calculators. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

For testing curved beam specimen, use the ring specimen fixture. Insert the specimen into the bend fixture. The number of test specimens is optional, however at least ten specimens are needed to obtain a satisfactory average for one ring or laminate. This guarantees results will be as accurate as possible.

It does this at a rate of 1. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. Continue loading until either of the following occurs: Finally, record the mode and location of failure. Each specimen end should overhang the base support centers by asm least the specimen thickness. Sources of Additional Information: The ast supports and the loading head are hardened steel cylinders, each 2. Adjustable mechanical stops for centering the specimen in the fixture can also be added as an option, as shown below in Fig.


This inconsistency among the standards is unfortunate since test results are actually affected very little by these relatively small variations in cylinder diameter see, for example, References 2, 3, 4. Special-size fixtures, either larger or smaller than the astk size, can also be fabricated, as indicated in Fig.

However, we can provide whatever diameters are desired, and the cylinders are easily interchanged since they are mounted in v-grooves and held in place by springs. A compressive loading can be applied by the loading head of the testing machine directly onto the top plate of the short beam shear test fixture. The loading nose should be located mid-way between supports.

It can also be used for comparative testing of composite materials, provided that failures occur consistently in the same mode 5. To calculate the short-beam strength, maximum load during the test and the specimen width and thickness values must be used in the equation provided by the standard.

However, for both three- and four-point flexure testing, if the corresponding ASTM standards are to be strictly conformed to, the loading astmm support cylinder diameters must be changed. Short-beam strength refers to the shear stress developed at the specimen mid-plane at failure. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: The top plate, containing linear bearings, moves freely up and down on these alignment posts, thus maintaining alignment between the two lower supports and the upper loading cylinder.

Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: Two hardened steel alignment posts, each 0.

Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:.

Short Beam Shear

Historical D23444 s – view previous versions of standard. To accommodate various laminate thicknesses, the span length of the fixture is infinitely adjustable over the full range of span lengths up to approximately 4.


Select from list below: The specimens are either small segments cut from astj ring or short beams cut from a flat laminate. This fixture is commonly used to test composite materials in interlaminar through-the-thickness shear, in general accordance with ASTM Standard D Reference 1. A typical specimen on the order of 0.

For testing flat laminates, use base supports. The span-to-thickness ratio is specified in the standard.

This permits the cylinders to be rotated, and also to be easily replaced if desired. Record the maximum load, final load, and the load at discontinuities in the load-displacement data. And with the optional adjustable-span four-point loading head shown in Fig. Fixture with Loading Head Removed. Front and rear views of this screw-adjustable short beam fixture, which can be used for either shear or flexure testing, are shown in Fig.

A fixture incorporating screw-adjustable supports that move in and out together is also available, as shown below in Fig.

ASTM D testing determines the apparent d344 shear strength of parallel fiber reinforced plastics. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. ASTM Standard Din existence sincenow recommends a specimen support span length-to-specimen thickness ratio of four for all types of materials.

Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc. Samples can be conditioned at room or elevated temperature, depending on your application. Align and center the specimen. Also shown is an optional fixed-span four-point loading head lower left and additional support and loading cylinders of various diameters.
