ASTM D5379 Test Fixture | GD5379-600


Model #
GD5379-600 test fixture meets ASTM D5379 requirements for Shear Strength using Iosipescu V Notched Beams. GD5379-600 is a ASTM D5379 Shear Strength Iosipescu V Notched Beam Composite Fixture, which is a unique asymmetric flexure fixture which tests shear properties of V-notched beam test samples. Each half of the fixture contains a wedge-action grip which lightly clamps one half of the test specimen across the specimen width while simultaneously supporting the specimen on its back face. The lower half grip is mounted on a base plate which also supports a linear bearing shaft, while the upper half grip contains a linear bearing which mounts over the shaft on the base. Each half is attached to or supported by the testing machine heads. A specified gap is left unsupported between fixture halves. An alignment tool is provided to ensure that the specimen notch is aligned with the line of action of the loading fixture.
