ASTM B769 covers the standard test method for shear testing of aluminum alloys. The test practices laid out by ASTM B769 are intended for the use of determining the ultimate shear strength of aluminum wrought and cast products. Many parts of aircrafts can be tested with the ASTM standard. ASTM E4 describes the load requirements of tension test machined used in accordance to this standard. A double shear fixture is used with the tension testing machine to shear the test specimen.
