Shear stress-strain in the 12 or 21 direction is measured through specimens cut from plaques of materials. The specimens are pulled at a constant rate while measuring the strain using non-contact extensometry.
The test can be performed in 0 or 90 orientation to obtain G12 or G21 data. Please specify the desired orientation.
- ASTM D5379
Shear Modulus, Shear Strain at Yield, Shear Strength, Shear Strength at Yield, Offset Yield Stress, Strain at Offset Yield. This data appears in Matereality as Shear Properties.
Number of times this test is repeated: 3
