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.
Short-beam strength refers to the shear stress developed at the specimen mid-plane at failure. The results can be useful for comparative analysis of composites and for research and development of interply strength.
The span length between the free-moving slides is specified in the standard. Fixture with Loading Head Removed.
ASTM D TESTING FIXTURE
Prepare at least five test specimens as described in the standard. 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. Adjustable mechanical stops for centering the specimen in the fixture can also be added as an option, as shown below in Fig.
However, we can provide whatever diameters are desired, and the cylinders are easily interchanged since they are mounted in v-grooves and held in place by springs. A typical specimen on the order of 0. The beam is loaded in three-point bending. It can also be used for comparative testing of composite materials, provided that failures occur consistently in the same mode 5.
The specimens are either small segments cut from a ring or short beams cut from a flat laminate.
ASTM D2344 TESTING FIXTURE
Select from list below: For testing curved beam specimen, use the ring specimen aastm. Work with us to find the right equipment for your ASTM standard. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. These specimen supports are then clamped in place using the Allen head screws shown.
The two supports and the loading head are hardened steel cylinders, each 2. Special-size fixtures, either larger or sstm than the standard size, can also be fabricated, as indicated in Fig. This test method specifies using a 6. Each specimen end should overhang the base support centers by at least the specimen thickness. And with the optional adjustable-span four-point loading head shown in Fig. Also shown is an optional fixed-span four-point loading head lower left and additional support and loading cylinders of various diameters.
Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc. The fixture is designed to rest unconstrained d3244 on the base of the testing machine. 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 specimen is a short beam machined from a curved or a flat laminate up to 6. 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.
Align and center the specimen. 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 span-to-thickness ratio is specified in the standard. We are happy to help! Record the width and the thickness at the mid-section and the total length.
To calculate the short-beam strength, maximum load during the d23344 and the specimen width and thickness values must be used in the equation provided by the standard. The number of test specimens is optional, however at least ten specimens are needed to obtain a satisfactory average for one ring or laminate. This permits the cylinders to be rotated, and also to be easily replaced if desired.
ASTM D2344 Polymer Matrix Short-Beam Strength Testing
For the standard test, they can be no thicker than 6. An assembled short beam shear astj fixture is shown in the top photograph of Fig.
Articulation is often not required when these brittle specimens are sufficiently flat, e. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the d344 standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Two hardened steel alignment posts, each 0. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. Record the maximum load, final load, and the load at discontinuities in the load-displacement data.
