Standard Test Method for Shear Properties of Sandwich Core Materials
|Publication Date:||25 July 2000|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of shear properties of sandwich construction core materials associated with shear distortion of planes parallel to the facings. It covers the determination of shear strength parallel to the plane of the sandwich, and the shear modulus associated with strains in a plane normal to the facings. The test may be conducted on core materials bonded directly to the loading plates or the sandwich facings bonded to the plates.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given may be approximate.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
