ISO 14129 Tensile Shear IPS Plastic Composites BS EN Test Equipment

0 0

ISO 14129 specifies the procedure for finding the material properties of fibre-reinforced plastics composites. These properties include the shear stress/shear strain response, the shear modulus of elasticity and shear strength as measured by the 45 degree tension test. The fibres of the materials being tested should be thermoset or thermoplastics laminates with unidirectional fibers or fabrics oriented +/- 45 degrees from the specimen axis. Strain gauges may be utilized in this test to get accurate data about the straining of the sample.

A tension-testing machine should be used for ISO 14129. The machine shall conform to ISO 5893 and shall be capable of maintaining a speed of 2 mm/min.
