Standard Test Method for Measuring the Fastener Pull-Through Resistance of a Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composite
|Publication Date:||15 May 2015|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
This test method determines the fastener pull-through resistance
of multidirectional polymer matrix composites reinforced by
high-modulus fibers. Fastener pull-through resistance is
characterized by the force-versus-displac
Two test procedures and configurations are provided. The first,
Procedure A, is suitable for screening and fastener development
purposes. The second, Procedure B, is configuration-depend
The specimens described herein may not be representative of actual joints which may contain one or more free edges adjacent to the fastener, or may contain multiple fasteners that can change the actual boundary conditions.
This test method is consistent with the recommendations of CMH-17, which describes the desirable attributes of a fastener pull-through test method.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
Within the text the inch-pound units are shown in brackets.
