The results can be useful for comparative analysis of composites and for research and development of interply strength. Select from list below: Samples can be conditioned at room or elevated temperature, depending on your application. Each specimen end should overhang the base support centers by at least the specimen thickness.

ASTM D2344 – Short-Beam Strength Testing of Polymer Matrix Composite Materials (Interlaminar Shear)
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. Continue loading until either of the following occurs: Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
Link to Active This link will always route to the f Active version of the standard. The beam is loaded in three-point bending.
ASTM D2344 Polymer Matrix Short-Beam Strength Testing
For testing flat laminates, use base supports. 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. Samples can be conditioned at room or elevated 3244, depending on your application.
However, supports and loading heads of any other diameters can be provided, if desired. This permits the cylinders to be rotated, and also to adtm easily replaced if desired.
Articulation is often not required when these brittle specimens are sufficiently flat, e. Two hardened steel alignment posts, each 0.
However, we can provide whatever diameters are desired, and the cylinders are easily interchanged since they 23344 mounted in v-grooves and held in place by springs.
This test method specifies using a 6.
This fixture is commonly used to test composite materials in interlaminar through-the-thickness shear, in general accordance with ASTM Standard D Reference 1. The specimen is a short beam machined from ashm curved or a flat laminate up to 6. A typical specimen on the order of 0. The specimens are either small segments cut from a ring or short beams cut from a flat laminate.
Short Beam Shear ASTM D
Short-beam strength refers to the shear stress developed at the specimen mid-plane at failure. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Sources of Additional Information: These specimen supports are then clamped in place using the Allen head screws shown.
ASTM D 2344 a testing standard designed to measure the short-beam strength of high-modulus fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites.
ASTM D Polymer Matrix Short-Beam Strength Testing - ADMET
This guarantees results will be as accurate as possible. Align and center the specimen. Because of the relatively large support span possible, i. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: And with the optional adjustable-span four-point loading head shown in Fig. The results can be useful for comparative analysis of composites and for research and development of interply strength. Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc.
Insert the specimen into the bend fixture. The fixture is designed to rest unconstrained directly on the base of the testing machine. For testing curved beam specimen, use the ring specimen fixture.
Record the width and the thickness at the mid-section and the total length. Historical Version s - view previous versions of standard. 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.
