ASTM D5379 Shear Samples

August 16, 2013

Recently, Tensilkut was asked to develop a method to prepare samples in accordance with ASTM D5379 for Shear Test Samples with a V-notch on either side.  These samples are to be used with the Iosipescu Shear Test Fixtures, as supplied by major testing machine manufacturers.  This test method for composites was developed during the 1980s, and the ASTM specimen was finalized in 1993.  The standard specimen is 3″ by .75″, and can be up to 1/2″ thick.  Identical notches are cut into either side of the specimen for accurate testing.  Tensilkut Engineering has developed a new machine specifically for preparing samples to ASTM D5379.
