The ASTM D5934 standard specifies the use of controlled rate of loading mechanical instrumentation on rectangular plastic bars molded directly or cut from sheets, plates, or molded shapes via three-point loading bending techniques to obtain material properties such as the elastic modulus. Thermoplastic and thermosetting resins and composite systems are covered by this test and the data generated can be used to select materials.
