Standard Test Method for Flatwise Compressive Properties of Sandwich Cores
|Publication Date:||1 December 2003|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the compressive strength and modulus of sandwich cores. These properties are usually determined for design purposes in a direction normal to the plane of facings as the core would be placed in a structural sandwich construction. The test procedures pertain to compression in this direction in particular, but also can be applied with possible minor variations to determining compressive properties in other directions.
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.
