ASTM D5379 covers the shear properties of composite materials reinforced by high-modulus fibers. ASTM D5379 is designed to produce data on shear chord modulus of elasticity, ultimate strength, strain and stress/strain response of various composite materials. The data received can be effected by the material, preparation of the material, stacking of the material, conditioning, environment at which the test is taking place, alignment and grip of the specimen, speed of the test, volume percent reinforcement and time at a certain temperature.
