ASTM D5379 covers the shear properties of composite materials reinforced by high-modulus fibers. ASTM D5379 is designed to produce shear property data for material specifications, research and development, quality assurance, and structural design and analysis.

ASTM D5379

Either in-plane or interlaminar shear properties may be evaluated using ASTM D5379 depending upon the orientation of the material coordinate system relative to the loading axis. Factors that influence the shear response and should therefore be reported include the following: material, methods of material preparation and layup, specimen stacking sequence, specimen preparation, specimen conditioning, environment of testing, specimen alignment and gripping, speed of testing, time at temperature, void content, and volume percent reinforcement.
