Articulation is often not required when these brittle specimens are sufficiently flat, e. Due to the very d344 number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:.

For the standard test, they can be no thicker than 6. This fixture is commonly used v2344 test composite materials in interlaminar through-the-thickness shear, in general accordance with ASTM Standard D Reference 1. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

ASTM D2344 – Short-Beam Strength Testing of Polymer Matrix Composite Materials (Interlaminar Shear)

This test method specifies using a 6. Sales Support Calibration Calculators.

Samples can be conditioned at room or elevated temperature, depending on your application. This guarantees results will be as accurate as possible. 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.

Each specimen end should overhang the base support centers by at least the specimen thickness. Work with us to find the right equipment for your ASTM standard. It does this at a rate of 1. Prepare at least five test specimens as described in the standard.

The beam is loaded in three-point bending. ASTM Standard Din existence sincenow recommends a specimen support span length-to-specimen thickness ratio of four for all types of materials. Also shown is an optional fixed-span four-point loading head lower left and additional support and loading cylinders of various diameters.


However, failures are normally dominated by resin and interlaminar properties, and the test results have been found to be repeatable for a given specimen geometry, material system, and stacking sequence 4. Two hardened steel alignment posts, each 0. Scale markings are engraved on the base to aid in setting the desired span length, by sliding the specimen supports to the required positions.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the 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. 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. The fixture is designed to rest unconstrained directly on the base of the testing machine.

The short beam fixture, in either the three-point or four-point loading configuration, can also be used for the flexural testing of brittle materials such as ceramics and ceramic-matrix composites when articulation of the loading and support points is not necessary.

Select from list below: Record the maximum load, final load, and the load at discontinuities in the load-displacement data.

For testing flat laminates, use base supports. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This permits the cylinders to be rotated, and also to be easily replaced if desired.

And with the optional adjustable-span four-point loading head shown in Fig. However, the test method can be applied to thicker samples, and Touchstone Engineers can perform both standard and customized testing. Short-beam strength refers to the shear stress developed at the specimen mid-plane at failure. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: However, supports and loading heads of any other diameters can be provided, if desired.


Adjustable mechanical stops for centering the specimen in the fixture can also be added as an option, as shown below in Fig. ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the asrm strength of high-modulus fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites.

The results can be useful for comparative analysis of composites and for research and development of interply strength. Combining values from the two systems may result atsm nonconformance with the standard. A fixture incorporating screw-adjustable supports that move in and out together is also available, as shown below in Fig.

The span length between the free-moving slides is specified in the standard. It can also be used for comparative testing of composite materials, provided that failures atm consistently in the same mode 5. Insert the specimen into the bend fixture.


Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Adjustable Specimen Centering Stops. The number of test specimens is optional, however at least ten specimens are needed to obtain a satisfactory average for one ring or laminate.

A typical specimen on the order of 0. Finally, d23444 the mode and location of failure. Because of the relatively large support span adtm, i. The specimens are either small segments cut from a ring or short beams cut from a flat laminate. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd.

An assembled short beam shear test fixture is shown in the top photograph of Ashm. For testing curved beam specimen, use the ring specimen fixture.
