ASTM C365 Test Fixture | GC365-223

Model #
GC365-223 test fixture meets ASTM C365 requirements. Sandwich constructions can include core materials with continuous bonding surfaces such as balsa wood and foam, and materials with discontinuous bonding surfaces (honeycomb). Properties are determined in the same direction the sandwich core will face during use, but ASTM C365 can also be applied to determine compressive forces in different directions. The goal of the test is to calculate results for the ultimate flatwise compressive strength, the stress at 2% deflection, and the compressive chord modulus. Determination of the compressive strength and modulus of sandwich cores are critical to the design of sandwich panels, which are mainly used in the aircraft industry.
