Standard Test Method for Interlaminar Shear Strength of 1-D and 2-D Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Advanced Ceramics at Elevated Temperatures
|Publication Date:||10 May 1999|
|ICS Code (Advanced ceramics):||81.060.30|
1.1 This test method addresses the compression of a double-notched specimen to determine interlaminar shear strength of continuous fiber-reinforced ceramic composites (CFCCs) at elevated temperatures. Specimen preparation methods and requirements, testing modes (load or displacement control), testing rates (load rate or displacement rate), data collection, and reporting procedures are addressed.
1.2 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. Specific precautionary statements are noted in 8.1 and 8.2.
1.3 This test method is used for testing advanced ceramic or glass matrix composites with continuous fiber reinforcement having a laminated structure such as in unidirectional (1-D) or bidirectional (2-D) fiber architecture (lay-ups of unidirectional plies or stacked fabric). This test method does not address composites with nonlaminated structures, such as (3-D) fiber architecture or discontinuous fiber-reinforced, whisker-reinforced, or particulate-reinforc
1.4 Values expressed in this test method are in accordance with the International System of Units (SI) and Practice E 380.
