The ASTM D7078 standard describes the testing of a high-modulus fiber-reinforced composite material in the form of a V-notched specimen gripped between two loading rails. As the loading rails pull apart shearing occurs near the notch due to stress concentrations. The material fibers covered by this test are laminates with: uniformly oriented continuous fibers, woven fibers or short randomly oriented fibers.
