Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested c7078 been gathered into the following groups: Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Factors that influence the shear response and should therefore be reported include: The composite materials are limited to continuous-fiber or discontinuous-fiber-reinforced composites in the following 7d078 forms: Select from list below: Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from this test method, include the dd7078 Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
ASTM D testing determines the shear properties of high-modulus fiber-reinforced composite materials by clamping the ends of V-notched specimens between two pairs of loading rails. Applying a tensile load will introduce shear forces into the specimen through the specimen faces.
Face loading allows higher shear forces to be applied to the specimen, if required. Historical Version s d707 view previous versions of standard. Please email info trl.
The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other.
Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. This loading allows higher shear forces to be applied to the specimen.
ASTM D7078 – Shear Properties Testing of Composite Materials by V-Notched Rail Shear
Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. In anisotropic materials, testing may be performed in any of the six possible shear planes.
The properties that astj be obtained from this test method include shear stress vesus engineering strain asstm, ultimate shear strength, ultimate engineering shear strain and shear chord modulus of elasticity.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard Translated Version s: 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. 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.

Referenced Documents atm 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:.
Either in-plane or interlaminar shear properties may be evaluated, depending upon the orientation of the material coordinate system relative to the loading axis. To request a quotation for any test email info trl. Within the text the inch-pound units are shown in brackets.
Only a single shear plane may be evaluated for any given specimen. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most zstm requested have been gathered into the following groups:.
Properties, in the test direction, which may be obtained from this test method, include the following:. 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 axtm 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.
When loaded in tension, the rails introduce shear forces into the specimen through the specimen faces.
