ASTM D5961 Polymer Matrix Composite Laminate Bearing Strength Test Equipment

The ASTM D5961 standard describes several test procedures to obtain data on the bearing response of pinned or fastened joints using multi-directional polymer matrix composite laminates reinforced by high-modulus fibers.

The test method A is double-shear tensile loading, B is single-shear tensile or compressive loading of a two-piece specimen, C is single-shear tensile loading of a one-piece specimen, and D is double-shear compressive loading. The properties obtained from this testing standard are the ultimate bearing strength, the offset bearing strength and the stress-strain curve.
