ASTM D testing determines the shear properties of high-modulus fiber-reinforced composite materials v7078 clamping the ends of V-notched specimens between two pairs of loading rails.
ASTM D7078 – Shear Properties Testing of Composite Materials by V-Notched Rail Shear
Applying a tensile load will introduce shear forces asrm the specimen through the specimen faces. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard Translated Version s: In both test methods, the use of a V-notched specimen increases the gage section shear stresses in relation to the shear stresses in the vicinity of the grips, thus localizing the failure within the gage section while causing the shear stress distribution to be more uniform than in a specimen without notches.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The composite materials are limited to continuous-fiber or discontinuous-fiber-reinforced composites in the following material forms: Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from this test method, include the following: Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd.
The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: Only a single shear plane may be evaluated for any given specimen. Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from this test method, include the following:.
Face loading allows higher shear forces to be applied to the specimen, if required. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. To request atsm quotation for any test email info trl.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. In anisotropic materials, testing may be performed in any of the six possible shear planes. This loading allows higher shear forces to be applied to the specimen. Either in-plane or interlaminar shear properties may be evaluated, depending upon the orientation of the material coordinate system relative to the loading axis. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices d70078 determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
ASTM D – V-notched Rail Shear Fixture
Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:. Select from list below: The properties that may be obtained from this test method include shear aastm vesus engineering strain response, ultimate shear strength, ultimate engineering shear strain and shear chord modulus of elasticity. Within the text the inch-pound units are shown in brackets.
The composite materials are limited to continuous-fiber or discontinuous-fiber-reinforced composites in the following material forms:.
When loaded in tension, the rails introduce shear forces into the specimen through the specimen faces. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
Factors that influence the shear response and should therefore be reported include: Link to Active This link will always route r7078 the current Active version of the standard.
This method is designed to produce shear property data that may be used for material specification, research and development, quality assurance and structural design and analysis. Please email info trl.
