ASTM D5467 Compression Tests of Unidirectional Polymer Matrix Composites Using a Sandwich Beam

0 0

ASTM D5467 covers the in-plane compressive properties of polymer matrix composite materials reinforced by high-modulus fibers in a sandwich beam configuration. The composite material forms are limited to continuous-fiber composites of unidirectional orientation. ASTM D5467 introduces compressive load into a thin skin bonded to a thick honeycomb core with the compressive load transmitted into the sample by subjecting the beam to four-point bending.
