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:. Applying a tensile load will introduce shear forces into the aastm through the specimen faces.
Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from asym test method, include the following:. Please email info trl. When loaded in tension, the rails introduce shear forces into the specimen through the specimen faces.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested wstm been gathered into the following groups:.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Only a single shear plane may be evaluated for any given specimen. In anisotropic materials, testing may be performed in any of the six possible shear planes.
ASTM D7078 – Shear Properties Testing of Composite Materials by V-Notched Rail Shear
Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions adtm those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: 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. The properties that may be obtained from this test method include shear stress vesus engineering strain response, ultimate shear strength, ultimate engineering shear strain and shear chord modulus of elasticity.
Either in-plane or interlaminar shear properties may be satm, depending upon the orientation of the material coordinate system relative to the loading axis. This loading allows higher shear forces to be applied to the specimen.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. To request a quotation for any test email info trl.
Factors that influence the shear response and should therefore be reported include: 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.
Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. The composite materials are limited to continuous-fiber or discontinuous-fiber-reinforced composites in the following material forms: ASTM D testing determines the shear properties of high-modulus ast, composite materials by clamping the ends of V-notched specimens between two pairs of loading rails. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other.
